I got lake apartment from work last week, and there was a lockbox over the thermostat in our apartment; I didn’t suppose if I was frustrated about the lockbox, or that someone was in our apartment when I wasn’t there; No 1 had the right to enter our apartment separate from notice.
- I called the superintendent and asked who was in our apartment while I was gone, but he said he been there, and he had installed lockboxes over all the thermostats in the apartment building, the owner of the building was complaining about the energy use, and he thought it was from the Heating and A/C system.
He set all the thermostats at sixty-six, and the lockboxes prevented the tenants from decreasing the hot and cold temperatures. I was freezing that evening, and remembered our Mom had given myself and others a space heating system for Christmas. I took it out of the closet and plugged it in, and for the first time in a week, I slept comfortably because I was warm. I was sure I was going to get something from the superintendent because I was using more electricity, although I heard nothing. Instead of cutting the lockbox and turning up the thermostat, I was getting warm with our space heater. I even ended up going to the store and buying 2 more space oil gas furnaces for the rest of the apartment. The owner of the apartment building didn’t want us using his furnace to stay warm, so I got smart and used space heaters, along with most of the other tenants, and when I said something about the space oil gas furnaces to our friend, he spread the word, and the local lake apartment center was soon our of space heaters.
