Question about Weather King 12AJA6001AH Air Conditioner

1 Answer

I'm renting an apartment with what appears to be an old...very old furnace. I've gone to the leasing office and nobody has come to look at it yet and it's been nearly 3 days without heat in my place. So here's the problem. I lit the burner as it must have been out the whole summer. I figured lighting the burner would give me heat but no luck. When looking at the furnance there's a chain pulley on the left with a low/high speed. When I pull the chain the motor/fan turns on but blows cold/cool air. No heat. I even jacked the thermostat up to 90 and still no heat. With the fan not running and the thermostat jacked there's still no heat. Nothing kicks on. My apartment is about 52 inside...very cold but wouldn't be so bad if it were 117 outside but that's not the case. Any suggestions?

What are the most important steps a tenant can take before they sign a lease for an apartment rental?

The tenant should inquiry all the facility before hiring the apartment for rental service. The tenant should discuss the rent and deposit amount before hiring the apartment. The agreement bond between the tenant and landlord should be legally notarized. As I am a resident of Dallas and I suggest the use of Dallas Apartment Locators service. They provide better service according to your requirements.

Renting and Paying the Gas Bill

This past week I changed out an old hot air furnace in a rental unit that made me question why the tenant did not go to the owner and offer to pay more rent in exchange for getting the furnace changed out sooner. If you are a renter that is paying the gas bill, then you need to think about this.
The hot air furnace was at least 60 years old. It had been coal fired furnace that was converted to gas many decades ago. The pilot light of this beast was more of a torch than a pilot light. When the thermostat called for heat the flame roared for 15 minutes before the exterior blower unit that was added when the furnace was converted to gas, started up to move air through the furnace and into the house.

As I was starting up the new unit, which took up less than 1/3 of the space of the old beast, the renter came and sat down on the basement steps looking on in amazement. How would that little thing make enough heat for the house? A few minutes later those questions were put to rest very quickly.

After starting the new furnace and burning off the oil that always smokes up the house a bit on a new startup the new little unit had the house warm as toast and was shutting down. Wow, that took less time than the old beast took to just warm up!

The renter related to me how that the old furnace cost over one hundred dollars a month just to run the pilot over the summer months. The wintertime heating bills were many times higher than that. The difference between the bills of the old unit and the bills that will be coming now will be unbelievable. A savings of 40-50% is not at all out of the question.

Now, if you are renting and are paying the bill to feed an old monster of a heating system, I suggest that you make a proposal to your landlord. Offer to pay a bit more rent in exchange for a new heating system. Not only will you decrease your gas bills enough to pay some extra rent and still come out ahead, but you will have the peace of mind that you have a safer heating system under the roof that you also live under.

What are the most important steps a tenant can take before they sign a lease for an apartment rental?

Take pictures of the apartment when you rent is so if there is anything wrong you will have pictures when you move out so they can not change you for what was already broken. allways take picutres. even a whole house picture inventory will be good if anything ever happens and you have to claim anything on your renters insurance. get that too. then alwasy do a walk through and let them take pictues of the place too. so when the time ever comes and you move out you will have pictures. then the most important thing is read the whole lease before you sign it. no matter if they say it is a standard lease read it before you sign it. if you do not agree on what you have read see if they will edit it and or change it if not you might not want to rent it after all. they could put in end of lease clause that could say anthing and fi you did not read it then you would not even know what it said. that is unless you took it home and read it after and that is too late.

In Wisconsin when should a landlord inform the tenant that he is not renewing the rent lease.

Call the landlord and tell him you want to re-new the lease, but you are wondering if someone forgot to send the new agreement.

Old Lease rules still apply right?

No, you're still "under" the old lease. There should be language about what happens after lease expires. Typically it's month to month, with 30 day notice on either side to vacate premises.

If they're looking to raise the rent, or ask you to pay additional expenses et al, then they need you to sign a new lease.

It sounds like they want you to pay a higher rent, but still reserve the right to kick you out as you're month-to-month.

You should check with a lawyer, but my inclination would be pay the old rent until they're willing to talk to you about a new lease.
