Gas heating technology

 I think that I am going to have to start looking for a new apartment soon. When I moved in, I had no idea that my air vents were connected to my neighbor’s apartment. We have separate HVAC units, so this wouldn’t be a problem if he wasn’t a heavy smoker. The smoke smell somehow gets into my apartment, and it is constantly giving me a headache. I can’t stand the smell of cigarettes. I have tried to remedy the problem by adding an air purifier onto my cooling system, but it is just not doing the job. I thought that the air purifier would up the air quality and keep the smoke smell out, but it can’t.

           If the landlord isn’t able to do something about this soon, I’m going to have to break my lease and move somewhere else. I realize that there’s not a no-smoking policy, so they can’t keep him from smoking in the apartment. However, I really wish he would be more considerate and only smoke outside. If there was a way to rig up the air vents of our HVAC unit so that they weren’t connected, that would probably solve all of our issues. I just don’t know if it’s possible to retroactively do that.

           I’m going to give this about a month’s time, and if nothing changes, I’ll start looking for a new place to stay. The first question I will ask the new property owners is whether or not their HVAC units are connected through the air vents. I just can’t handle the smoke!
