  1. I have thought of it, Marty, but I moved here...

    I have thought of it, Marty, but I moved here from a pretty nice townhouse because I wanted more room and a little yard. I have a lot of advantages to living in a duplex over an apartment. Even if...
  2. Yes, Shophound, my choices are very limited. He...

    Yes, Shophound, my choices are very limited. He does not care if I get an air conditioning company to come out. He just refuses to pay for any repairs. Thanks for the words of encouragement.
  3. I am going to try to do it. I am older, retired,...

    I am going to try to do it. I am older, retired, and I get out very, very little, maybe just twice per month to do grocery shopping. I am not in good health, and I do not have air conditioning in...
  4. I was thinking more along the lines of that stuff...

    I was thinking more along the lines of that stuff they blow into the attic. I certainly cannot do it at any rate. I checked at 5:20, and the indoor is at 80 whilst the outdoor temp is 105. The...
  5. Update

    Code came out this afternoon at two p.m. The ONLY thing Code will do is place a thermometre in one of the vents to determine what temperature is the air blowing out of the vent. The man said it was...
  6. Enough is Enough

    Okay, I have had enough. I will be contacting Code next week to see what they can do to help. I have been keeping track of the indoor and outdoor temps for days now. Here are the indoor/outdoor...
  7. Of course you are correct, Shophound. Anyone...

    Of course you are correct, Shophound. Anyone would think you knew him! As R said to me last night, the landlord "labels" anyone who stands up to him as a "problem tenant." R said "it is *all*...
  8. I hate to use that term, 54regcab, but you are...

    I hate to use that term, 54regcab, but you are not the first one to make this observation. One of my friends said the same thing about him a long, long time ago before this ever came up....

    Late...
  9. Of course that sounds logical, rational,...

    Of course that sounds logical, rational, reasonable. However, my landlord does not really care how good of a repair his contractor does so long as the contractor does not charge what the landlord...
  10. He is getting a good rental rate from me, and I...

    He is getting a good rental rate from me, and I do not think it would be possible to find anyone anywhere who would take better care of the apartment than I do. I am an excellent tenant. He is just...
  11. Thanks, udarrell, I am still tracking and will...

    Thanks, udarrell, I am still tracking and will let you know. : )
  12. Thanks very much. Actually, the Code department...

    Thanks very much. Actually, the Code department can investigate. I am not sure what they can do if the air conditioner is just performing poorly. The important thing here is that a landlord cannot...
  13. What I meant by a veiled threat is that I believe...

    What I meant by a veiled threat is that I believe he will try to retaliate against me next year at lease renewal time because I asked for repairs to be done properly. That is against the law in...
  14. What do you make of this?

    Below is the email message I sent to my landlord yesterday, and his replay today. As far as I am concerned, this is solely an issue of whether or not there is a problem with the air conditioner. I...
  15. Oh, believe me, skippedover, I absolutely have no...

    Oh, believe me, skippedover, I absolutely have no plan to try to repair anything myself. I realise that this is far, far, far beyond my skill set. I am just trying to collect data to support my...
  16. I know...my usual bill this time of the year is...

    I know...my usual bill this time of the year is around $150 per month (am I allowed to say that?), and I am afraid the next one is going to be at least $250.

    I am gathering what evidence I can do...
  17. Thanks Shophound. I did not realise that was not...

    Thanks Shophound. I did not realise that was not permitted. I logged out and in again, but I cannot find an "edit" button for that post so that I can remove the amounts. The only post I made that...
  18. Thanks, udarrell. Can I find this testing...

    Thanks, udarrell. Can I find this testing equipment at Lowes or Home Depot?
  19. Actually, come to think of it, yes! Before they...

    Actually, come to think of it, yes! Before they came out, the only problem I had was that the inside unit did not always come on even though the outside unit would come on. I never noticed the...
  20. Cheapest is Not Necessarily the Most Cost Effective

    Funny you should say that SBKold. Please allow me to give you a typical example of how that works. I noticed a long time ago (talking well over a year ago) that sometimes the outside unit would...
  21. I think something is wrong...landlord disagrees with me

    Hi guys,

    I lease a 900+ sq. ft. duplex apartment in Fort Worth, Texas. I noticed a few weeks ago that my air did not seem to be blowing as strongly as it normally has done the last few years.
