Recently my boyfriend and I moved into a tiny duplex with his sister.
At first, I was the only one in our room so I was sleeping on an air mattress.
Conveniently, the mattress was venued directly in front of the one air vent in the room. This meant when his sister would turn down the air conditioning system to go to bed I would be bombarded with frigid air that was almost too freezing for comfort. When I informed my boyfriend about this he was gleeful as he had a tendency to get overly sizzling and it caused him to not sleep through the night sporadically. A week later, my boyfriend and his king size mattress made their way into our room. Sadly, his mattress was much larger 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! Our first night my good friend and I both struggled to get to sleep and ended up waking up frequently throughout the night. My pal and I struggled to find a solution as getting a ceiling fan put in seemed too much hassle on top of us not truly being able to afford going out and installing a ceiling fan on our own. My boyfriend abruptly remembered that he had a tiny box fan that could comfortably do the job. The fan lasted two weeks before abruptly giving out on us. My pal and I would turn the fan on however the blades refused to spin. It wasn’t until after my boyfriend unscrewed the back of the fan and gave 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 pal and I are now considering the ceiling fan again as it is only a matter of afternoons before the box fan gives out completely.
