Is your apartment’s HVAC system not working?
Most apartment building owners have a contract with one of the local air conditioning companies in case something goes wrong with the HVAC system. There are both upsides and downsides to signing this kind of document with a heating and cooling company. The upside is that when something goes wrong you are guaranteed to have an AC contractor come and take a look at the problem. The downside, however, is that if the company you have the contract with cannot make it out to your apartment complex that day you are not allowed to call another heating and air company for help.
Having to rely on one company for all your HVAC needs can be quiet troublesome at times. Then is especially true when one of your residents does not have cold or hot air pumping into their apartment. That resident is paying rent and has every right to be able to live comfortably in their home. So, if the company you have the contract with cannot make it to them right away to fix the problem you will most likely have a very angry resident.
