The HVAC is super old

I had thought I had lucked at first out when my friends plus I found this certainly cool apartment for rent, however we’re starting to regret our decision to move in. From the beginning of it all, I did have a bit of a feeling that all of this was too good to be true! Why would a landlord rent out a apartment to a bunch of reclaiming university students similar to us. How did any of us pass the credit check with all of our student debt, without any further questions? Almost always every property owner I’ve come across asks about it. While they will typically let us rent thanks to our good references, its a conversation that we can never avoid whatsoever. But I thought I was just being stressed. After all, this guy was a first time property owner, plus just trying to make money on a apartment he couldn’t sell because the market is doing so badly, it seemed fair enough I suppose. However, when I went down to the basement to check out the oil tanks a single day, I saw  the oil boiler for the first time since living here. While I’m not a fan of an oil furnace in general, as it can be every extravagant to afford, I do like a boiler. However, this boiler was at least twenty five years seasoned plus hadn’t been maintained in the last 5, then regardless of the type of central heater, every apartment needs its heating plus cooling systems maintained at least twice a year, or at least just once. I called my property owner, plus he told myself and others that it wasn’t an issue I should just drop it. I informed him that the last time I was in a apartment that went without heating plus A/C maintenance, the people I was with and I almost died in our sleep due to carbon monoxide poisoning. I had to threaten him with a health inspection to finally get him to make a move on calling a heating plus A/C service.
