This condo came with baseboard electric heat which I have never used. In fact about a decade ago, the thermometer was where I wanted some built ins so I just told them to yank it out and cover the hole. My neighbors all around me have supplied plenty of heat for years.
But this week I got cold. Not put a sweater on to fix it cold but hands and feet and head cold. The hat helped but my nose was cold. I wouldn't be too worried if this was April. But we're looking down the nose of months of this. So... I got on Amazon and heater shopped.
I figured all I need is one small ceramic heater that sits on the floor in the living room. Of course, I wanted one with a phone app that Alexa could work but, apparently, heaters as a genre aren't there yet. There are some that claim but it does not take too many reviews to reveal their claims are just that.
So I abandoned that idea and figured a plain old remote would be fine. I finally settled on one and got ready to buy only to see 'delivery on Monday' - WTF??? Are you kidding me? No no no. So I did something I rarely ever ever ever do. I put on my shoes and got in the car and went to a store.
Home Depot had several choices and I narrowed it down to 2. Studied those two and picked one. I got it home and set it up and it looks fine and works fine.
I figured that Amazon probably carried the same model for $10 or $20 less than the $102 I paid. Found it on Amazon and holy crap on a stick, Amazon's selling the same thing for $160! With a Tuesday delivery date. Thank you, Home Depot!
