I had to wait for two full days with no indoor cooling in July before my landlord finally sent an HVAC technician to my apartment to fix the broken air conditioner.
I don’t have a choice but to rent for the foreseeable future. While a handful of my friends are already homeowners in their late 20s, I don’t think that this is the standard for most people in my age group. The cost of homes shot up in my area since the pandemic and they don’t look like they’re going to drop anytime soon. My city felt congested and swollen to capacity, but then thousands of acres of forests and swamp land was converted into subdivisions, apartment buildings, and condominiums. It’s absolutely mind numbing to drive by all of this construction on a daily basis. Despite the new homes, the prices are still too much for me to afford. I have to stick with renting for a while if I like it or not. Sadly my landlord takes his time with everything, especially when I needed an HVAC technician to fix my air conditioner recently.

It’s frustrating when you pay your rent on time but your landlord can’t keep up his end of the deal. I shouldn’t be sweating in an apartment with no air conditioning when it’s a Tuesday and there are plenty of HVAC companies around with available technicians. I hope that I can get a higher paying job so I can apply for a mortgage and move into my own house. That way I can get an HVAC service contract.
