The only heat in our bathroom comes from this old electric heater:
When it gets cold, this thing just turns on all by itself. Something wrong with the rheostat, I guess. The door to the bathroom is blackened on the inside from being up against the hot coils. By strategic positioning of a magazine rack, we’ve rigged the door so it can’t open all the way, to avoid the possibility of it catching fire.
Still, if our house burns down, this would be prime suspect. I really need to have an electrician look at it. Plus we blew a circuit last week and it won’t reset; flipping the switch at the circuit breaker doesn’t have any effect. Definitely time to call an electrician.
