I've been looking around at a condo to purchase and saw a unit I really like. The building is all electric and the listing states that heat and AC are included in the building's assessments. After doing a bit of research in the condo's owner's forum I saw postings about owners asking management when the AC is going to be turned on. So it looks like you can't turn on the AC yourself.
There are also some posts about removing tubes and cleaning out the sludge in the unit before first use of the AC in the spring. The condo is an old warehouse loft conversion and I noticed a huge unit which I assume to be a chiller on the roof when I went to see the roof-top deck.
The Realtor said that I would only be paying for electricity to run the fan blower for heat and AC but I'm not so sure I believe her. Any opinions / advise would be greatly appreciated!
Thanks in advance.
