I also went around the apartments plus completed a long list of improvements to eliminate energy waste
I recently obtained a building that includes four separate apartments. The building is quite outdated plus features original hardwood floors, doors plus moldings. The sizable windows plus high ceilings make these apartments hard to heat plus coolâ€¦ When I purchased the buildings there was no insulation in the walls plus ceilings, however all of the windows were seriously outdated plus leaked a tremendous amount of air. The front plus back doors of the apartments lacked weatherstripping plus failed to shut securely. When I asked the renters if they had any complaints or problems, they all told me about cold conditions while the two of us were in the Wintertide plus concerns with heat plus humidity in the summer. They were unhappy with the performance of the heating plus cooling systems plus hoped I’d consider replacing them, however i evaluated the biweekly utility costs plus saw a steady increase over the years. I then hired a local HVAC contractor to look over the heating plus cooling equipment. The contractor found that the units were not outdated however had not been officially cared for. The renters had failed to correctly replace air filters plus the former owner hadn’t kept up with professional service. A thorough cleaning plus adjustment of the heating plus cooling program significantly improved efficiency, capacity plus indoor air quality. I obtained a supply of filters plus handed them out to the renters. I also went around the apartments plus completed a long list of improvements to eliminate energy waste. I installed installation, replaced windows, purchased new exterior doors, caulked plus weatherstripped. The renters are not much happier with the comfort level of their apartments. I’m thankful that the biweekly utility bills aren’t costing me as much.
