Hello, and thanks for your question!!
There are no codes that require you to have an A/C unit installed in any dwelling.
I hope this helps answer your question, I will check back later to see your reply to me.
Your very welcome
so in california we are suppose to die from the heat?
as a tenant I just had to install it
lol, you would think so.
it was over 100% inside
I live in cal
I know how you feel
i installed my own unit
i would just billed the landlord for the material
$20 on material
the wood, i cut it and the brackets to hold the unit at my guest house
Was the landlord ok with you doing it?
i never asked him.
i just felt i needed it
i sweat like a pig inside
and landlord never considered having a unit
I would not just send them a bill for it. I would ask them if you can do it first. By installing the wood and brackets you are technically altering his property.
I would ask if they mind and let them know you will remove it when you move
If they are good landlords they will offer to reimburse you
If not, they can actually ask that you remove it because of the alterations
I deal with ALLOT of rentals and am very familiar with this topic
have you ever had a guest house with no ac?
this is interesting
the landlord built a house with no AC at all
that's gonna be hot for sure
i also get outages, my house does. I got a UPS running in my office to protect my computers
Wish I had beyyer news for you
my plumbing also gets clogged
Now that's a lagit issue that they have to deal with!!
landlord just has us rent the snake and reimburse us for the snake rental
If he is willing to do that then he will most likely ok you to install the a/s, as long as you do a clean job.I would ask him before you let him know you actually did it
Let him know that the cost of materials and the mounting system you install will stay in place for his next renter
If your willing to eat the $20 for materials he will probably say go for it
BTW, its suppose to hit 101 in your area this week
thanks for the weather announcement
I live in Rancho Cucamunga, I can tell you about the heat!! lol
