It is a central unit with the main vent panel inside our unit on the ceiling in the hallway leading to our second bedroom, bath, and washer/dryer. We are not sure about the mold or mildew but worry since the carpet is always damp even though we have storage tubs lining the area to catch the water. Yes, it is interferring with us getting to the bedroom, bathroom and using our washer and dryer. It has not made it uninhabitable but it is an extreme inconvenience and annoyance since we have to move the tubs to access those areas, and worry that they may fill up while we are at work during the day, and are constantly having to put in requests to come out and fix it again. We also wonder if this allows us to withhold paying rent until it is fixed for good?
