Question about Heating & Cooling

1 Answer

My air went out on the 20th on this month. I called the landlord that Sunday to let him know that my air went out and he told me that he had someone to come and check it out Monday morning, I was at work and I called home and asked my nephew did the guy come out to fix the air, he said that the guy came but he didn't do anything. I called the landlord monday and told him that the guy did not fix it he said I know, he complained about how nasty my house was but he don't know how my house was he never come to it. Me and my kids been in this house for 6days without air, Icomplained and called every day for the past couple of days he would not fix it. He keeps telling me thathe was going to fix it but he never comes. Hehad an attitude with me about it but i went and bought the filters and called him and told him he was to come out and fix it. When he didn't come Icalled him twice and he didnot answer his phone. Ihad my niece to call him he still didn't answer his phone as so she left him a message he still did not return my calls. I told him that it is too hot in this house for me and my kids. He acts as if he don't care. Yes I know that I owe him $340. for the other month on rent. Ipay this man $625. a month. This house is not worth it. I don't have the money like that to pay for a room for me and my kids. My son slept in the car monday night, my nephewslept in the car Tuesday night, my daughter spends the night at her little friends house to stay cool. Iam asking could you please help me. Thank you, Rose Murphy.

Well, you are in a tough spot here. I am not sure what state you are in but AC is not required to be working only the heat needs to be, unless the ac is listed in your lease agreement. Unfortunately AC is considered a comfort. I would make sure that your rent is up to date to cover your end then contact the local Department of Building Inspection and tell them your situation. All you can do at this point is document conversations, dates and times and start writing letters to local housing authorities. Maybe letting him know that you are taking action to have the issue resolved may push him to make the repair. Again make sure you are up to date on your rent. I would also start to look elsewhere to live so you don't have to deal with this guy anymore.

Good Luck to ya

    Hey Rose, if you want to tell me the state and county of where you live, I can look up the laws governing housing for your area as well as any recourse you may have and how to go about it. If you want to ga as far as giving me your address, I may actually be able to do some for you but if you don't feel comfortable I more than understand. I know you paid a couple of dollars to post a question here and it doesn't sound like a couple of dollars come to easy for you these days so I thought I could do everything I possibly could to help you with this awfull situation. If you post the info here I will get it and get back to you tommorrow. If you do want to give me your address, email it to me so its not posted here. Hope we can get this resolved for ya.

Is a landlord aloud to use current month rent to pay past due rent without letting me know and give me a 3 day eve notice for not paying current month rent????? please HELP!!!

Renting property is different from state to state, but a 3 day eviction notice is way below the minimum days allowed. My advice would be to look at your state's renting eviction policies to get full information about how to go about this.

We have a Kenmore Refridgerator in our rental apartment. The light for the water filter went to red. We called the landlord but they claimed that they replaced it 3 months ago. They suggested we hit the...

recommended replacment time is 3 months and the computer knows it was replaced 3 months ago and has counted down the time the reset button was last pressed and determined its been 3 months. Depending on water quality in your region it may not need to be replaced unless the in door water or ice taste funny or the water dispenses slowly through the door because the filter was clogged and having a hard time having water pass through it.

if this is a self defrosting ref. it should do it by itself. one knob on the right will make your ref cooler by making your freezer controls a vent that lets cold air from your freezer. try that ok.

Coleman Heat Pump Freezes Up

This sounds like an airflow problem. You said you change the filters every 3 weeks or so. Check the filters and the indoor coil to make sure they are clean. Also look at the indoor fan and make sure it is running and running at speed. A fan that isn't running at the rated speed will cause the coil to freeze. A weak capacitor can make the fan run slow. Also make sure the fan blade/wheel is clean. A low refrigerant charge will also cause the unit to freeze. It doesn't matter what you have the thermostat set on because the temperature of the refrigerant is determined by the pressure of the refrigerant and the airflow across the coils. If it freezes up again you can put it in heat mode to melt the ice.

If it is forced air heat then you should change the filters. Also check to make sure the heater is kicking on. The main heat trunk line should feel warm right by the heater.

Sounds like it. Replacement of both STKs is required. (They should always replaced as a set).
