Keep in mind that a lease is a binding contract.

Do any of your properties allow pets? (Back to Top)
A few of our properties do allow pets. Restrictions apply. Check with an agent about what units may allow a pet and restrictions.

How do I turn on the heat? (Back to Top)
There is a thermostat in every apartment. Look at the thermostat and change the switch from "cool" or "off" to "heat". Once the furnace/heater has turned on there might be a hot/burning smell that should go away within about 15 minutes, and is normal. If there is smoke turn off your unit and call us for maintenance. *Note* some apartments have multiple thermostats, you will have to turn the thermostat to heat in each room with a thermostat.

How do I check to see if my furnace, electric baseboard heat, or boiler heat is working? (Back to Top)
Once you have turned on your furnace/heater, check it by setting the temperature to a hotter setting than what the temperature is in your apartment. For example if your apartment is 70 degrees turn the thermostat to 75, if you have a furnace and it is working it should turn on and blow warm air. For a heater (electric baseboard or boiler) turn up thermostat to a temperature warmer than your apartment, keep in mind because heaters are a radiant heat source they do take longer to heat.

How do I turn on my Air Conditioner? (Back to Top)
There is an Air Conditioner (A/C) in every apartment a Central Air Conditioner (CA/C) or a Window Air Conditioner (WA/C). If you have a CA/C you will need to look at the thermostat and change the switch from "heat" or "off" to "cool".  If you have a WA/C that usually just requires you to turn on the power to the unit through the power button or power switch.

How do I check to see if my Air Conditioner is working? (Back to Top)
Once you have turned on your Air Conditioner, check it by setting the temperature to a cooler setting than what the temperature is in your apartment. For example if your apartment is 80 degrees turn the thermostat to 75, if the furnace is working it should turn on and blow cool air.
