Dripping air conditioner - owned by building

Postby mbrenner » Wed Jun 26, 2002 10:00 am

I own my own air conditioner. The air conditioner
directly above mine is owned by the building. The
building says they are not responsible for water
dripping on my air conditioner (even though it is
theirs). I think there may be something wrong
with the unit. Some dripping is normal -- this is
not. What are my rights as a rent stabilized
tenant? Also, has anyone else had this problem
(sound is VERY annoying and I'm afraid my unit
will short out) - and how can I cover up and
protect my unit from the water? Can I make the
building pay for it?

Either move your AC unit a few inches to either side or intall it in another window:-)

Unfortunately, I only have two windows. Cannot
change the window. Re moving it over a few inches -- their ac is bigger than mine. But both of them were good ideas. Thank you.

this wouldn't be aesthetically pleasing, but maybe you could take an old rag and position it on the top of your AC to deaden the sound of the water falling above.

Thanks for the suggestion. I've been sticking
an umbrella OVER my unit at night. Removing
during day (at work). Will have to seek a
more permanent remedy.
