Recently my wifey and I moved into a tiny duplex with her sister.
At first, I was the only one in our room so I was sleeping on an air mattress. Conveniently, the mattress was sited directly in front of the one air vent in the room. This meant when her sister would turn down the A/C to go to bed I would be bombarded with chilly air that was almost too chilly for comfort. When I informed my wifey about this she was excited as she had a tendency to get overly overheated and it caused him to not sleep through the night periodically. A week later, my wifey and her king size mattress made their way into our room. Sadly, her mattress was much greater than the one I was using so the air vent didn’t hit us and it had been when I was on the air mattress, but our first night my friend and I both struggled to get to sleep and ended up waking up frequently throughout the night. My great friend and I struggled to find a solution as getting a ceiling fan put in seemed too much hassle on top of us not easily being able to afford going out and installing a ceiling fan on our own. My wifey suddenly remembered that she had a tiny box fan that could comfortably do the job. The fan lasted two weeks before suddenly giving out on us. My great friend and I would turn the fan on but the blades refused to spin. It wasn’t until after my wifey unscrewed the back of the fan and provided the blades a spin would the system start. When it did get going it would let out this blood-curdling screech as if the engine was about to give. My great friend and I are now considering the ceiling fan again as it is only a matter of mornings before the box fan gives out completely.
