The heater was knocked over by the animal
The animal must have knocked the gas heating machine over in the middle of the evening
My apartment happens to be on the first floor. The bedroom is basically always freezing & so is the family room. There is a pretty sizable radiator in the family room & it puts out a pretty good amount of heat… Unfortunately, the radiators throughout the rest of the apartment hardly even function! I have them open the whole way & they still do not supply a good enough amount of heat. Still, this is the only apartment that I can cover the cost on my salary. It’s relatively close to my job so I do not spend a large amount of time grumbling… When I realized that heating was going to be a major issue, I decided to purchase a small section gas heating machine to keep in the apartment. I keep the section gas furnace on the counter in the family room. I only have to set it to the medium setting & it provides all kinds of toasty air. Periodically it is way too sizzling & I have to shut off the gas heating machine entirely. A few evenings ago, the uneven temperatures were totally freezing & I set up the section gas heating machine before I went to bed. I woke up in the middle of the evening to get a glass of water & the bathroom was rather ice-cold. I walked out to the family room & I came to the realization that the section gas heating machine was off. I turned on the light & I found the section gas heating machine on the floor. The animal must have knocked the gas heating machine over in the middle of the evening. I purchased a section gas furnace that has an automatic shutoff switch. Anytime the gas heating machine is not upright, the heating function will not bother to work. I suddenly put the gas furnace back on the counter & sited the animal in my study room for the duration of the evening.
