Irate edit!My family is going to freeze tonight.Stupid cheap heater!edit

Posted by   + Show Post
My damn heater has stopped working in the middle of a cold as heck snow storm! Our house was poorly built and has drafts going all through the house making it near impossible to keep warm. This is one of those times I wish I wasn't afraid of space heaters and. Had one.



Edit



Well maintenance man will be here in 10 min so we will see how this turns out

The maintenance man comes out fiddles with things. It kicks mildly warm air out for one min and he leaves. I check on it in five min it blowing freezing cold air!! They said they won't come to figure out what is wrong with it again until Wednesday!! Seriously!! Hell no!! I'm so pissed and whoever answers the phone better hand me the owners number because I'm calling them. Who leaves a family with four small children in a house with no heat for five days!!! And then however long it takes to order parts after that. If they stick to their guns on nothing until Wednesday I'm calling a lawyer to see what our rights are. Then I'm getting them black listed if they don't own up and fix this. Every repair takes weeks to months with these people.

I agree she should call them now but chances are they won't answer till the am and buy calling and not getting an answer or response might stress her out more Kwim. I know I would be pissed off


Quoting cmabbott:

Call them now!!! I'm sorry Momma. If you can get an oil radiator space heater and everyone sleep in the room it's in. They really need to get that taken care of ASAP!



Quoting Fields456:

If they don't get the heater fixed then they are responsible for providing u an alternative. I would call them tomorrow and tell them to either fix it of u will be getting some.






Quoting CM_Junkie:

I'm pretty sure any space heater is banned per our lease but I'm about to tell them to go to hell!








Quoting Fields456:

Before we had our whole hvac system replaced to even get our house halfway warm it would CPS like $800 a month ( ya not payin that). We bought several of the tower oscillating heaters. No coils show and they all have an auto cut off if the get too hot or tip over. They were around $90 each I think and if u close the door your room gets toasty.

Pile on the blankets and cuddle together. You'll be okay. Tomorrow call your landlord and have them fix the heater.

I've got one of these, too.  They are very safe and can heat up a whole room.  I got mine at Target for about $65.  You can also sleep with a heating pad and stay warm in the bed.


Quoting Anonymous:

Bundle up! Get a portable radiator, I can't use the heating in my home so that's all we have.

This is why we have a wood stove and a fireplace.  We love our wood stove the most.  Our power went out a lot in our other house.  I would use the wood stove down the basement to cook on etc.  We have a few Kerosene heaters too.

Sleep together.
