Over the years, I have had several different apartments, and I’ve never really experienced any major problems. This time is different. I recently moved into the city and I’m finding it hard to swallow that I am paying premium prices for less than mediocre location. I chose this apartment because it was convenient to my work area. I was closer to my work, and I was able to get to school to finish my post grad work, and receive my doctorate. I didn’t have to commute, and walking was the reasonable mode of transportation. I made sure to do the pre-move in paperwork and I notated the broken and damaged items. The biggest concern I had was with the HVAC. After a couple of weeks, I realized that the HVAC was less than acceptable. This is nothing worse than coming home from a grueling day at work, or school, to find out that the comfortable sixty-eight degrees you had set on your thermostat, was now almost eighty. If his reputation is correct, it is going to take a lot of cajoling to even get the landlord to check out the HVAC system, let alone repair it. I need my air conditioning, and it won’t be long until I need the heating, also. Tomorrow is supposed to be a fairly mild day, and going without the HVAC won’t be a real problem. I’m thinking about calling up the landlord and asking him to come over tomorrow and take a look at the HVAC. If he doesn’t, I’ll call the HVAC service center, and set up an appointment, myself.
