After being stored for so long, spiders begin to make cobwebs on the coils of the space heater.
I can’t stand strong smells in my house. While most people would agree that they don’t like to smell anything that is stinky, I would have to admit that even the slightest stinky or uncommon smells bother me to the point of gagging. My wife picks on me often for being overdramatic about the smells. One of the worst smells is in the Winter when we first begin using our HVAC units to keep our house warm. Our furnace is an older model, so it isn’t very efficient at heating the house when the temperature drops below a certain point. Because of this, we have discovered the supplemental heating helps lower our bills immensely, and we bought a lot of space heaters to help keep our house warm at a decent price. Rather than getting the oil-filled radiant space heaters that make the house feel warm and humid, we decided to get the coil heaters that make the house warm very quickly. Though they draw more electricity, they still were more efficient than the furnace, and we needed a lot of heat. Unfortunately, using those space heaters every Winter had a drawback. After being stored for so long, spiders begin to make cobwebs on the coils of the space heater. On top of that, dust and dirt also fall into the space heater. When you first turn the heater on, all you can smell for hours is the dust and cobwebs burning to a crisp, and it smells terrible. I immediately start gagging and have to leave my home. I wish we could just purchase a new furnace instead.
