Landlord or Tenant-Who’s Responsible

Tenants want to live in a home that’s attractive and comfortable. That’s cool in the summer and warm in the winter. But who exactly is responsible for HVAC service and maintenance? Is it you (the landlord) or your tenant? Well, this is what today’s post aims to answer.Generally, landlords aren’t required to provide it as per the landlord-tenant laws, says Innovative Property Solutions. That’s because most jurisdictions consider air conditioning an amenity as opposed to a requirement under the Implied Warranty of Habitability laws. 

Currently Installed Ductwork

Current Ductwork

On structures with central heating and air conditioning, ductwork is usually installed above the ceiling or beneath the floors. Ductwork is what moves the air and disperses it in every room through vents. A common question many people ask is: “can I keep my existing ductwork when I install a new HVAC Unit?” In most cases, the answer is yes; however, if the condition of your ductwork is suffering from one of the following issues, it likely needs to be replaced.

Unit Capacity

In Florida, having a properly functioning HVAC system isn’t a luxury, it’s a necessity. Floridians experience warm weather for most of the year, with summertime temperatures reaching into the 100’s. When you’re installing or upgrading your home’s HVAC system, it might seem better to purchase a unit that has more power than you really need. In fact, installing an HVAC unit that’s too large, or too small, can result in extreme consequences. It’s important that your system is a perfect match for the size of your home to avoid any issues.

Why is there Ice on my Air Conditioner

Water Leaking

Water Leaking

Water leaking from your indoor air conditioner is never a good sign. It usually means something isn’t operating properly. On a properly functioning unit, all water should be draining outdoors. A/C units come with built-in condensate lines and pans to catch any water that may leak in your home. If you’re experiencing any water leaking inside from your A/C unit, here are some possible solutions.

Why is my Air Conditioning not Blowing Cold Air?

There are many possibilities as to why your air conditioning isn’t blowing out cold air. The first thing you should check is your indoor coil. The air filter is attached to the coil. Hopefully you’re familiar with it, because they require occasional replacement. If your current filter is dirty, this is likely the issue. Buildup on the filter restricts airflow, preventing cold air from flowing through into your home.
