Pollen season — whoops, we mean spring — is here! In addition to the layer of green nonsense that has coated everything in sight, we’ll also be seeing some crazy temperature fluctuations that make it pretty hard to adjust your air conditioning accordingly. Here are a few tips to help ensure that your A/C is running efficiently:

  • Your A/C does not cool when the temperature outside is cooler than the setting. For example, if it’s 70 degrees outside and your A/C is set to 74, it will not kick on unless you’re doing something funky (like hot yoga) that drives the temperature inside higher than 74 degrees.
  • Make sure your A/C is set to “auto” or else it will keep running consistently (therefore increasing your electricity bill).
  • Communicate with your roommates! If your A/C is on but your roommate has their window open, the unit will have to work extra hard to cool the place down (once again, increasing your electricity bill).

Reminders & Updates

Maintenance will be replacing all air filters in the apartments. Due to the number of units, this will take more than one day to complete. Please keep an eye out for a tentative schedule we’ll be sending very soon.
