I’ve lived in my third floor walk-up apartment for eighteen years. I have no intention of moving. My place is small with a minuscule bathroom and corner kitchen, but I can afford the rent. I wish the landlord put some of that rent money into keeping the place up a lot better, but at least the hallways are clean and well lit. Plus, I’m in a fun neighborhood. Lot’s of good places to eat. The riverwalk is right across the street. I honestly don’t even mind the three flights of stairs, except on laundry day. At least I get my exercise in without having to pay for a gym membership. The one thing that I do hate is how cold it gets in here during the winter. The windows are old and drafty as can be. I’ve done that plastic wrap you seal with a blow dryer on them but then I have no fresh air in my apartment until spring. I’ve come to depend on space heaters. Actually, I’m kind of an expert when it comes to space heaters. I should be. I’ve bought enough of them over the years. The first thing to know before you buy one is what type of space heater is best suited for your place. The radiant space heaters heat up fast and are great in a small spot, like heating your bathroom so you aren’t chattering in the shower. While convection space heaters will get your whole living room or bedroom warm and toasty. It really comes down to what the size of the room and style. I have space heaters that look like radiator units in my living room and bedroom but I found a radiant space heater that could be wall mounted and use that one in my bathroom.
