I had noticed that every single time I would turn on my portable space heater as of lately it would have this god awful smell.
It almost smelled like dirty socks! I could not take it anymore so I decided to take my portable space heater to this small repair shop here in town to see if they would be able to either fix it or tell me what was wrong.
It turned out that the portable space heater’s fan was dying out and that is why I was getting that smell coming out. The best course of action for this was to just go out and buy a brand new portable space heater. The cost to repair the one I had would be more expensive than actually just getting a new space heater all together. I went to the store the following day and bought a brand new space heater. They had portable space heaters on sale at the store, so I actually was able to get it a lot cheaper than what I originally paid for the first space heater that I had got. So I was kind of lucky. It was great to be able to have indoor comfort all over again and not have to smell that horrible smell that the broken down portable space heater was giving me. I have a portable air conditioning system too, but so far that has never given me any problems. Maybe because they are built stronger and are more expensive than portable space heaters? I have no clue to be totally honest.
