When purchasing an air conditioner:

  • Only 5,000-8,000 btu window units are allowed. The wiring in the buildings cannot support larger units.
  • Newer, energy efficient models should be purchased to reduce the chance of tripping circuits in the apartment.

When installing an air conditioner:

  • Place wood underneath it on the inside and outside to support it so it does not damage the window frame.
  • Tilt it downward toward the outdoors, so the water from it drains outside.
  • Do not drill into the window or window frame. You will be charged if you damage the window.
  • If you are unsure of how to install it, submit a maintenance request.
  • A/Cs should only be installed from May 15th to October 1st. There is a $50 fee if they are in before May 15th or not removed by October 1st.
  • When you remove your AC in the fall, please save any wood and window supports for next season.
