I had just graduated from college and was looking forward to starting my adult life in another state.
I had recently decided to move to another state as I did not see many opportunities for aspiring actors in my home state.
My parents though not completely convinced, had agreed to my plan of moving out a week after graduating. Now I was in this new house that was not in the greatest condition. The wallpaper was starting to come undone from the wall and many appliances were not working. There was no ductless multi-split or any other unit fitted in the house and so instead of shivering myself to sleep every night, I purchased a portable space heater for warmth. I was elated when mum brought me an oil heater for my bedroom when she visited since the house was still super cold. There was a WiFi thermostat in the house despite the non-existent a/c unit. I had noticed a HVAC duct sticking out from the ductwork that was going around the building. After a month of living like a church mouse, the caretaker finally informed me that the heating contractor was going to fit a zone controlled HVAC unit in my house when he came to perform a furnace heater tune-up on the central system in the apartment building. The HVAC repairman suggested that for quality heating, my house be fitted with cooling equipment that would match the cooling technology used by the central unit. The local cooling and heating business supplied legit hardware for all a/c unit brands. After a month, I was able to not only enjoy the warmth in my house but the indoor air quality hand significantly increased. I was now ready to start my life.
