    I would fill out the Tarion form for your issue. I believe this is still covered under the warranty. Do it quick because the building is coming up to 2 years this month. I would call Tarion immediately first and they can advise you.

    The fumes are poisonous. I assumed that it was from the heating system but it's actually from the bathroom exhaust fan. I don't have it turned on and it's been spewing horrible and intense smoke. It was choking me. I've complained and I'm still waiting for it to be fixed. I've had to tape a...

    My HVAC is blowing out a weird smell, kind of like an old radiator or saw dust. I had to air out my unit for a 1/2 hour. I don't know if it's dust or some other toxin. It's not a fresh air scent. Is this normal? It's coming out of the ceiling vents. I'm worried that I need to buy an air...

    I spoke to Roseanne today and she said the A/C guys did a thorough cleaning of all the lines from top to bottom. However, I said that we won't know if it worked to solve the problem until next summer when we turn the A/C on again. She shrugged and said that she budgeted for any future repairs...

    Now that our HVAC system has been checked and filters replaced, how do we know that they fixed any problems that we have been experiencing? The person above me, below me and myself have been experiencing leaking of our A/C units during the summer months. How do we know that this won't keep...

    No. I don't believe that I'm hearing dumbbells on the rack. A week ago, I heard someone incessantly making a loud thud sound for a couple of minutes straight. A few days ago, the same noise occurred around 8 or 9pm. I use free weights also and I know how loud they can get when you slam them...

    The only time I hear people talking is when they are in the hallway. My next door neighbours have had parties in the past and I've never been disturbed. I'm pretty sure they weren't whispering but I wasn't able to hear them once the door is closed. I've asked my neighbours if they ever hear me...

    These sound complaints seem very inconsistent from the upper floors compared to the lower floors. Perhaps the builder skimped on the higher floors. I live on a lower floor and I had a hell of a time trying to drill into the ceiling concrete to put up curtain rods. It wasn't concrete that we...

    I agree that the benches make noise but the noise that I hear sounds like, "kaklunk kaklunk kaklunk," but louder like a couple of 70lb dumbbells being dropped. If that floor is considered rubber it is not the standard flooring used for a gym to absorb sound. Those rinky dinky black mats under...

    Wow! That sounds awful. I don't hear conversation but I do hear the person above me drop things or drag furniture which gets very annoying if you want to take a nap. I complained once and was told they were renovating so I let that go. I also hear piano playing quite often lately. I'm not...

    Go speak to Reza in the PDI office on Monday. He might have some idea.

    I hear popping noises too! Sometimes it sounds like the blinds are banging and then other times it sounds like the vent fan is popping. I can't figure it out. I've forgotten that the Wellesley hospital was around here. I joke to people that it must be the ghosts but it may be true now. Yikes!

    Computers usually don't use that much electricity. It's appliances and A/C. Therefore having your A/C on all the time will cause it. As for flooring problems, you could speak to the PDI guy, Reza, for advice. I usually find my place really dry. My skin gets very parched. I use my...

    Last year my hydro bill was high in the $130 range. I have now dropped it to $30-50. I always turn off the A/C when I leave home. Don't let it work uselessly when you're not there. Do your laundry and turn on your dishwasher after 9pm now since that's the cheapest time of hydro use...
