A common issue with tenants is air conditioning not cooling sufficiently. Keep in mind that during change over the property A/C may have been set higher and with the doors be left open to bring in luggage ect… it will be warm in the property. Slowly lower the temperature on the thermostat in 5 degree increments to avoid freezing the condenser, do not set below 70 degree. Lowering the temperature anymore will not cool the property any quicker and may cause issues or damage to the HVAC. If you find it is not cooling, check that the condenser and air handler is runner, and if the air coming from the vents is warm, in this case turn the A/C off and leave it off. It may take a few hours for the condenser coils to defrost. Immediately notify Calloway Realty.
A common tenant issue is refrigerator not cooling sufficiently. Typically this is due to having the door open for an extended period of time when loading the refrigerator with food and drink upon arrival. Do not turn the thermostat to the lowest setting, keep it in the mid-range. Open the door as little as possible for the next 12-24 hours to allow for sufficient recovery.
