Sometime, you guess from the start you have a bad property owner; however, the rent or location is too hard to pass up; you take the house and just suffer through the pitfalls, but recently, I rented a small lake house in a good section of town. I wanted to be closer to my work, so I took the rent increase for all the positives that my modern to myself and others lake house would offer me! Honestly, I didn’t check out the property owner as thoroughly as I tend to do, for this beach condo was in such a better neighborhood than others I had rented, well, I l received my lesson the hard way; however, fall was setting in fast in our neck of the woods and the chilly was bitterly felt in the early afternoon hours. I knew it was time to turn on the Heating and A/C system. I went over to the temperature control to supply it a gentle start. I knew you needed to go slow with any unit, when it hasn’t been in gear for some time. Well, the sound was bad. I mean really bad. It screeched, it blasted and it stunk like there was no end in site! This was bad. I called the property owner for hours, then nights and finally after a week of being frozen, I provided up. I called the nearby Heating and cooling provider to come over and look at the system. He said that he hadn’t maintenanced this device since it was installed years ago! He opened the vents that were rusted shut and the filters were completely clogged. The HVAC duct was infested with mold and dead bugs! The entire heating and cooling device needed to be replaced. The property owner finally called myself and others back. He knew he was at fault and approved all of the task and replacement.
