I almost had a panic attack when I realized my apartment had a burning smell inside of it! But I started to assume dizzy and nauseated, and awful memories came flooding back to when my room was on fire; when I was young, my parents had a space gas furnace in my room to help keep me warm, however it ended up catching on fire, and I had to be rushed out of my apartment by my parents! Ever since then, I have been paranoid about heating and A/C systems and them being a potential fire hazard, but thankfully, I have been seriously careful, and I have never had complications! So when I abruptly started smelling a burning smell, that is why I started panicking.
I started rushing around my apartment, preferring a madman, trying to find the source of the smell.
It smelled almost as if it was coming everywhere. This made me panic even further, because I originally thought it might be an electrical fire. Then I remember I turned the heating equipment on 10 minutes ago, since it is early Winter, and I haven’t used the heating and A/C equipment in awhile. I turned the a/c equipment off, and sure enough, the smell dissipated. That was the issue, the heating system was just burning off dust because it had not been used in awhile. I felt a big wave of relief, and but I knew this, my heart was still racing in my chest. I went ahead and turned the heating system back on, and sat down on the couch to rest.
