The hissing noise stopped, and I was finally able to relax again.
I was sitting in my small apartment, devouring a steaming bowl of ramen noodles when abruptly, I heard a loud noise coming from the boiler! It was so loud that I could not even hear myself think. I suddenly put down my chopsticks and walked over to the boiler to see if there was anything I could do; But, as I approached it, I realized that I had no proposal what I was looking at, and the boiler was a black metal box with pipes and dials and buttons, and I had no proposal what any of them did. I was starting to believe a little sad, so I decided to call my building owner to see if he could come and take a look, then he was quick to respond, however he told me that he would not be able to make it until the next afternoon. I was starting to believe actually concerned now, as I did not want to risk anything happening to my boiler while I was asleep. I decided to do some research online to see if I could fix it myself, then after a few hours of searching, I was able to figure out that the noise was coming from a build-up of air in the pipes. I found a release valve and, with a little hesitation, I turned it. The hissing noise stopped, and I was finally able to relax again. I was so relieved that I could get back to my bowl of ramen and prefer the rest of my meal in peace. The next afternoon, my building owner came over and took a look at the boiler. He was impressed that I had figured out the problem and fixed it, and he even provided me a small discount on my rent for being so handy.
