Heating/air-conditioning unit mounted on wall near ceiling


Remote control for air unit


Hello! I hope everyone back home is doing well and staying warm. I have been learning to deal with being really cold. The weather here is mighty chilly right now. I wear sweaters a lot and constantly apply lotion because my skin is so dry. All of the rooms in our house are heated individually by heaters that are mounted on the walls near the ceiling. They are operated by remote control, and luckily we have a translated diagram of the buttons (the navy housing office gave it to us). These air units also provide us with air conditioning in the summer. They work well in each bedroom because the area that needs to be heated is small. The living room is a bit more challenging because the room is the largest in the house. We try to keep our heating costs down by only turning the heat on when we are in a room. This makes for a very cold house in the morning!

Stay warm everyone!

You should crochet yourself a nice warm dress. This one's a little small but I'm sure you could make some adaptations.
