Heating and Cooling

The central air conditioning equipment is usually turned on from May 15 to October 15. The heating system is usually turned on from October 15th to May 15th. 

 

The HVAC systems in the units are common property (see Disclosure statement) of the Corporation.  The occupant/owner must inspect the filter periodically to determine if it needs replacement. Changing the filter every three months is recommended.

Troubleshooting Your System

 If you encounter problems with “No cooling” or “No heating” there are some steps you can perform that may help.  The first step is to check your thermostat to see if it is programmed for the feature you require.  Appended to this manual is a quick reference guide to programming your thermostat.   When you have confirmed that the thermostat is correct and working and you still do not have cooling or heating;  you can “Reboot” the system by turning the main breaker off  for (20) seconds or so.  The breaker should be marked “Heat Pump”.  If the system is still not working; call the Property Management.  

 

Here are some tips of getting the best use of this heating and cooling system:

 

  • Be sure that vents and heaters are not blocked. This will not only limit their effectiveness, but can be a fire hazard.
  • During the summer, close curtains and blinds when the sun is shining through your windows.
  • When the system is on, keep windows and doors closed.
  • When we have moderate weather during the spring and fall time, it is most effective to turn off your heating and cooling, and instead open windows for natural ventilation and fresh air.
  • For proper airflow, replace your filter every three months.
  • If you encounter problems with your heating and cooling system, please contact us. Our property manager can advise whether there is a problem with the central system.
