DTE POWER OUTAGE: No heat, hot water or electricity

Announcement for Multiple Communities

A Few Friendly Reminders Regarding The Power Outage

Please be advised that the power outage is a DTE issue and is 100% out of our control . Unfortunately the power is out in the entire community and surrounding areas. This means there is NO heat, hot water or electricty currently in your home. DTE updated their website and has an estimated restoration time of 3:30pm. PLEASE contact DTE directly for additional questions, comments or concerns. Again, Maintenance is unable to restore power and this is 100% a DTE issue.

We would like to ask you to follow a few precautionary...

The DTE app says that the power is on at my address in The Courtyards but then I get this email. So I'm confused because I'm at work all day and have hundreds of dollars of food in the refrigerator and freezer.

Maintenance is onsite and t our knowledge the power has not been restored in any part of the community.

The boilers heat the water so unfortunately there is no hot water either. This is 100% out of our control until DTE restores power.

Then DTE is mistaken and should update their website.

Thursday 1/31/19: Interrupted Heat

Announcement for Multiple Communities

Good Morning Courtyards and Springs Residents,

The cold temperature is outrageous! It is currently -36 below zero outside! BRRRRRRRR!

You may experience interrupted heat throughout the day. The weather is so bitter cold that it is freezing the boiler exhausts; subsequently causing the boilers to shut down. We have a WONDERFUL Maintenance Team that have been literally running from boiler to boiler throughout last night and this morning to chip off the ice on the exhausts to keep the heat running.

We have a total of 36 boilers and rest assured every single...

FREEZING TEMPS= Broken pipes and loss of heat and water

Announcement for Multiple Communities

Good Afternoon Residents,

The coming days will bring another round of below freezing temperatures. In fact we won’t see day time highs above 0 until Friday afternoon. This is just a friendly reminder, as we will need your help again to avoid major issues that can come with cold temperatures.

When the temperature takes a nose-dive to 10 degrees above zero, or colder, you can help prevent frozen water pipes and breakage of water lines by doing the following:

Open all water faucets in your apartment to a steady stream of 1/8 inch or less, but not a drip . This helps to...

Heat! Heat! Heat!
Yesterday an email was sent with instructions on how to maintain a warm home and prevention on how to keep pipes from bursting. The irony is my apartment HAS be maintenanced an when I return home from work (yesterday a day before the BIG CHILL) it was chilly in my apartment ! I felt the heat vents an they haven’t been on ( including that evening)!!!
Today it is colder and no heat!!!!!! It was said tentns should maintain an apartment at least at 60 degrees *correct!!! MY ISSUE is that I can’t regulate my heat in my home , so how can I maintain 60 degree average when I haven’t had proper heat since the day before ...... I pay rent to have that resource provide and it is not!!!!!!! I gotten all kind of excuses from the front office about the heat takes time blah, blah, blah ...... but I have yet to wake up to a decent temperature unit!!!
I ve been patient and now I m st my wits end with this heat issue! What provision or commadations are you going to provide for cold homes?!!

Good Morning Jamilah,

Unfortuantely with these weather breaking temps, the boilers are working to the best of their abilities. This isn't isolated to just The Courtyards; the County is under a major freeze due to the record breaking fridged temperatures. 

Our Maintenance Team has been checking every boiler around the clock to make sure all are functioning. When a resident reports a "no heat" work order, one of our technicians will arrive and check the temperature in the center of every room and also the temperature of the heat run pipes to ensure the tempertures are adequate. All temperature readings are recorded on the work order. 

I pulled your recent work order and see that the temperatures ranged from 77F to 83F. This is considered sufficient heat. The boiler will not kick out higher temperatures than this during the freeze out we are experiencing.

When you posted this yesterday, we dispatched a tech again but a minor was home so we were not able to enter. Our maintenancfe coordinator did attempt to reach you to arrange a time when we could come back when either the minor was not home alone or when an adult was present. 

I have been listening to the maintenance radio all morning and techs have been at the boiler that services your home multiple times this morning. Please contact the maintenance office for all maintenance concerns or if you would like a tech to come to your home for either heat concerns or any maintenance needs.

The weather should break tomorrow! Stay warm!

Regards,

Andrea Mack

The temps the techs are taking are of the pipes running along the wall that does not translate to room temps, it is the wall temps and air temperatures that are very low in my apartment it was 60 degrees in my upstairs last night so cold I slept in my clothes.
