I don’t suppose who designed this apartment but it was a genuinely stupid plan to put the control equipment right over the dishwasher; The heat from the dishwasher gives the control equipment false studying & makes it suppose it is much warmer in the apartment than it truly is whenever the dishwasher is running, and in the Winter the people I was with and I freeze because the oil furnace won’t kick on for 2 hours while the dishes are being washed.
In the summer time the people I was with and I freeze again because the won’t turn off while the dishes are being washed.
The control equipment is 1 of those truly outdated 1 that has a dial to turn & set the temperature on & it is wired into the wall. I suppose our HVAC system is not that super outdated but the control equipment actually is. I bet the control equipment was in the kitchen before this apartment even had a dishwasher & that’s the reason for the poor layout. I hesitated to call a heating & air woman to come & transfer the control equipment because I assumed it would be a lot of work & would require ripping wires out of the walls but enough was enough, and when the serviceman came out she said that the outdated control equipment could simply be covered with a plate cover & she could install a new wireless control equipment somewhere in the apartment I want. What a relief. The new control equipment cost me under $100 & now it is localed in the hallway, away from the dishwasher, & I truly wish I had done this earlier instead of waiting so long.
