Maintenance Corner – Window Air Conditioners

April 1, 2022

Summer is fast approaching and many residents will soon be seeking relief from the heat and humidity by installing air conditioners. The yearly utility charge for having an air conditioner is $120. The $120 charge is per air conditioner, regardless of when the air conditioner is installed. It includes both window and portable air conditioners. If not paid in full by July 5, 2022, a $25 late fee will be added to your account. You are free to install the unit yourself, or Maintenance can do it for $45 per window. If this is your first time with an air conditioner, there is a medical reason, or you are elderly, Maintenance will install the air conditioner at no charge. MHA installation usually takes approximately 1-2 weeks after a work order is placed with our office. Please remember that air conditioners cannot be installed in crank-out windows or egress windows, such as in bedrooms containing only one window. We will be happy to answer your air conditioner questions if you call or stop by the management office.
