Feedback Problem for The Villas

It's so cold!! All of my windows and the patio are shut/locked. No matter how much higher I raise the temp, it's not getting any higher than 63 degrees. :(

I also have this issue! It’s freezing in this apartment. I have mine set to 80, and it has not gone past 65.

We also have this problem ... Except our heat dropped below 60 and we were forced to go out and buy a space heater.

Thank you for reaching out to us about the heating in your apartment. It is very difficult to combat the subzero temperatures outside and the 15 mph winds.With the boiler heating system, it can only put out so much heat and mother nature are giving it a run for its money.

Please be patient with us. Our team is working as quickly as possible to handle any ‘no heat’ maintenance request. Luckily the temperatures will be back above zero tomorrow, so we just have one more day of bundling up. Please remember that if your home is above 65 degrees today that you are about 80 degrees warmer than outside. So, though it is likely cooler than we would normally keep your home, this is an extraordinary weather event.

Please call the office if you think the heat is not working. Maintenance is more than happy to come and check on it for you!

Have a great day!

We have the same problem. I literally touched the heating units and they are cold. No heat is coming out.

Hey Tia,
I've been meaning to return your call, but I forgot about it until now.. Sorry! Thank you for reaching out to me so quickly by the way. I ended up fixing the issue myself when I went to google and youtube for help, lol. Majority of the cold air was coming from the patio door and there was an opening around the AC unit. I ended up putting foam into the track of the sliding door, bubble wrap over the glass doors and secured any gaps around the AC. It sounds silly, but IT WORKED!!!
