I had a trip up North planned for over two months, and I was anxious to get there.
I booked a small cabin in the mountains, and it had great reviews online. A lot of other renters said it was clean, comfortable, and in a beautiful location. I booked the cabin for a fantastic rate since it was considered the “off season” and cold weather was expected. In fact, it started snowing as soon as I pulled into the driveway! I had no plans of leaving the cabin once I checked in, so the snow was a nice touch. I lugged all my belongings and groceries for the week into the cabin and started exploring my new home for the week. The snow was really falling outside, and the temperature inside was dropping quickly, so I set out to turn the heat on. When I found the thermostat in the hallway, I turned the temperature from 70 degrees to 75 degrees. As I waited for the cabin to warm up, I unpacked my bags. When I was still feeling cold afterwards, I went back to the thermostat and adjusted it a few more degrees. I wasn’t feeling any heat, so I began to panic that it would never warm up. The reviews for the rental were great though, so I didn’t understand why nobody else had a problem with the heat. It must have been something I was doing. When I went back to the thermostat, I noticed something I hadn’t seen before. There was a ductless mini system hanging on the wall above, and it wasn’t turned on! Once I hit the on button, the vents opened up and the heat began flowing.
