I was up in our apartment office, the other day, working on a client’s edits when I heard an entirely strange sound. At first I thought it was just odd feedback from my headphones, or one of the cats, however, an hour later, I heard it again… That time, I didn’t have my slippers on, so I felt it in my feet! It felt loud… Finally, since our roommates had gone to work for the afternoon, I took off our headphones and just listened to electronica on the speakers; I had a lot of work to do, even though I wanted to try to suss out the noise. Twenty minutes later, when the gas furnace kicked on again, I had my answer. The noise started again instantly after. Sure enough, as soon as I went downstairs, the boiler made itself heard. The sound itself was pretty deafening; it had a pitch to it that made my ears ring. I know nothing about boilers, however there was a card on the side that the landlord or the Heating and A/C guy must have been using to keep track of service. The last date of repair was several years ago! Not only that, the boiler is 33 years old! I texted our roommates plus called our landlord ASAP. He tried to tell me that it was on us to repair the Heating plus A/C, even though it’s nowhere on the lease. After a long hour of arguing, our awful landlord is finally getting the boiler cared for. I’m going to laugh if he has to spend his money to replace it too.
