My renter assured me that the space oil furnace she has will turn itself off if it even gets bumped but I was still not comfortable! Finally, she talked me into letting her get a baseboard oil furnace for the room.
I had more than 2 rooms for rent in my ranch-style beach house as well as I was happy when a nice older lady told me she was really interested in renting both of the rooms. She explained that she wanted one room for herself as well as the minute room for her vast reptile connection. I was a bit taken aback. On the one hand, I am not a huge fan of reptiles. On the other hand, reptiles won’t need living room privileges or anything appreciate that so they would make superb beach house guests. So I agreed. Once the reptiles were moved in I started to have minute thoughts. Those reptiles need a lot of heat, however heat equals electricity. Electricity equals cash. Thankfully, my new renter agreed to pay anything above average to help heat her reptiles. She also said that her pets wouldn’t need much cooling in the Summer months so the two of us could save that way too. However, she does want to put a space oil furnace in the reptile room as well as I don’t want her to do that. I know space heating systems are unsafe as well as I don’t want a fire starting. My renter assured me that the space oil furnace she has will turn itself off if it even gets bumped but I was still not comfortable! Finally, she talked me into letting her get a baseboard oil furnace for the room. Those seem to be a lot safer, in my opinion. Now that the two of us have the heating issue all settled I have found that I legitimately am happy with my new renter as well as her pets! Don’t tell anyone but I am even starting to hot up to some of the lizards. They are kind of cute.
