FREE INTERNET!

That’s right, FREE INTERNET is right around the corner!  Over the next couple of months you’ll see Google Fiber trucks in the parking lot and installation crews all over the property.  Every apartment will get a device installed in the apartment right above the front door.  Then it’s up to you to contact Google and schedule the final installation – more info on this as soon as we have it.

Our understanding is that free internet service will be available sometime in January, so stay tuned for more information and say “HI” to the Google Fiber Crew!

The ABC’s of A/Cs

This is a catchy title for a very serious subject and a reminder from last summer.  Because some of you may be tempted to turn on the air conditioner way too early, we have decided to educate you regarding the proper use, care, and maintenance of the units you will need to depend on all summer to keep you comfortable.

  1. Do not run the air conditioner when the temperature outside is 65 degrees and lower.  The refrigeration system used in air conditioning equipment is designed to work when the outdoor temperature is above 65 degrees.  Running the unit when the outside temperature is too low will cause the coil to freeze which causes damage to your air conditioner unit, your apartment, and the halls as the ice on the coils melt.  Never set your thermostat below 72 degrees. Hot is Hot! and your air conditioner will only lower the temperature in your apartment by 15 degrees over the outside temperature.
  2. When you decide to turn your air conditioner on you must leave it on for the season.  Turning the unit on and off interrupts the cycle and causes damage to your unit.  The air conditioner cannot cool until it first draws all the humidity out of your apartment.  Set your thermostat to “cool” and “auto.”  Adjust the temperature in your apartment by setting the temperature lower on the thermostat to stay cool and higher when you need to warm up.
  3. Be smart about keeping your apartment as cool as possible and your electric bill as low as possible.  Close your blinds and windows.  Cover the windows with curtains.  Arrange your furniture for sitting areas to be away from the windows.  Use an oscillating fan to help circulate the air in your apartment.  Do “wet” chores in the early morning or at night when it is cooler.  This will help keep the humidity down.  If you must use your oven do it at night.

Following and understanding these simple guidelines will keep you more comfortable this summer and us be better able to serve you.
