I just moved into a loft for the first time since I left loft for college at 18 years old.
Four years were spent in a dormitory, another several were spent in apartments with several roommates, while the last many years I lived alone in a studio apartment.
The view of my last home was amazing, with a perfect look out at the ocean several floors below, even though I was ready for change. I wanted to have a yard where I could walk outside plus have potted plants plus a garden. There, I could have appealing flowers to look at every morning while I sip my Starbucks Coffee plus read the news. I wanted to finally have the space plus comfort of privacy while not being crammed into a building with people in every direction, just a few feet away at any given moment, separated from you by only a 6 inch wall. Needless to say, the day I gained the keys to my first loft was momentous. I purchased up-to-date furniture at a local boutique store plus began decorating after my initial paint job was finished. The first habit I developed was leaving the windows open throughout the day plus often through the entire evening most evenings. The breeze felt amazing plus it was the first time I had this degree of privacy, so I exploited the freedom that came with itâ€¦ But, at the same time, I should have been turning my cooling system off while I left my windows open. I didn’t realize I was making it labor harder during each cycle, thus wearing down many of the internal components. My serviceman said the fan motor looked overworn given the machine’s age, plus the cracked evaporator coil clearly needed to be replaced. This was after just 6 months in my up-to-date house.
