HVAC filters will be replaced before you move in, periodic replacement or washing of the filter is the tenant’s responsibility. Do not store any items in your heating and air conditioning closet. To improve the efficiency of your unit, do not cover the return air vent located in your hallway or dining room area. It is imperative that the filters be changed, as it greatly improves the efficiency of your heating/air conditioning system and the quality of the air you breathe. Please call maintenance if you are unsure of the size of the filter. If your HVAC is equipped with a washable filter, you may rinse your filter using water from the outside water spigot, cleaning the filter on your sink may cause the plumbing to clog. If there are any water filters in your water system, the tenant is responsible for changing the filter. Please note, not changing a water filter will eventually decrease water pressure.
