Furnaces and air conditioners are the property of the unit owners, not the Association. All unit owners must have the furnace located within their unit inspected every two years by a company licensed and insured in the Commonwealth of Virginia, and cleaned and/or repaired as indicated by the inspection.
All unit owners must provide the Association's Managing Agent with a completed inspection form and written certification (such as a paid receipt) that the furnace in their unit has been inspected and all necessary cleaning and/or repairs have been performed. The completed inspection and certification must be received at the Association's on-site office no later than October 1 of every odd calendar year. If the inspection is not completed by that date, the Association may have the inspection completed on behalf of the owner and charge the owner for the cost of the inspection, the cost of a locksmith (if needed), and an administrative charge of $100.00. Homeowners who are under a maintenance contract need only to provide a copy of their contract. Service contracts are a cost-effective way to ensure that the equipment is maintained and that you have priority on a service call in case of a problem.
Please change the filters at least four times per year to ensure proper operation and furnace efficiency.
