The company advertises up to four bedrooms and air conditioning among amenities on its website.
Kendra Fenderson said she heard about the problem before moving in but didn’t expect it to be a major problem.
“I have heat exhaustion,” said Fenderson. “I’m six and a half months pregnant. I suffer from migraines.”
Lakeisha White said she pays $ 1,200 a month in rent and plans to move out because of the air conditioning problem.
“It’s been hot for at least a month,” said White.
Explanation of the speaker of the sapphire:
“The cooler works in the building. While the cooling system provides some relief and the heat index is higher than the Michigan years, it is to be expected that most large buildings will be warmer than some are used to. We look forward to it that the temperatures will return to normal. “
Resident Anthony Brown is partially disabled and has four children. He told Action News he was paying $ 1,600 a month for a three bedroom unit. He said the coolest thing it gets is 79 degrees.
Action News has already reported problems in the apartment complex over the winter.
