I’m never sure if my landlord is a nice guy, or an bad 1. He’s that weird blend of man where you can’t quite tell if he’s just clueless, or being purposefully obtuse to get out of paying for anything. Regardless, my landlord is trying to get out of 1 of the key aspects of caring for his property, as well as my roommates as well as I have about had enough. yesterday every one of us made the choice to go downstairs to inspect our basement for water injure. Our neighborhood had recently suffered a terrible bout of flooding, so our landlord asked us to please do a walkthrough as well as let him think if every one of us found anything. If every one of us discovered any injure or flooding, he promised to have a guy out here ASAP to clean out the water as well as make any repairs necessary. Well, while every one of us were relieved that our basement is still dry as well as safe, every one of us discovered another small horror. Our oil boiler is officially ancient. As we’ve never had any issue with the central heater, we’ve never thought to bother checking on it before. The year the boiler was first built is 1986. What’s worse is the tag from the local Heating, Ventilation as well as A/C business; Kind of like a library card, it details what service was done as well as when it was performed. The last recorded date of service is from 3 years ago–the same time my landlord starting leasing the lake house out. I called the landlord to let him think that the basement was fine, however every one of us needed a central oil furnace inspection ASAP before Winter officially set in. He doesn’t suppose the oil boiler even needs an inspection. I told him that the average boiler only lasts for 20 years, as well as this thing is 16 beyond that. He finally consented to have an Heating, Ventilation as well as A/C contractor out next week.
