Landlord using shortcuts to repair air quality systems

When the last tenant moved out, our property owner was in a hurry to have the next tenant transfer in; I found the home a week after the last tenant had moved out, & I advised the property owner to take her time to renovate the house… After paying the deposit, I waited for another 2 weeks to transfer in! The work was shoddy & I couldn’t turn back because I had given the notice to vacate our previous dwelling.

The HVAC repair wasn’t complete by the time I moved in.

The air conditioner workman I found performing the air conditioner installation confirmed to me that she was working there for the sixth day straight. The HVAC device she was installing arrived late & I wasn’t supposed to see them either… When she was done, the property owner didn’t bother to inspect her work & being a novice, I couldn’t tell if it worked well until I noticed the radiant furnace wasn’t radiating enough heat but the cooling system worked perfectly! My calls to the property owner went unanswered, so I took it upon myself to find an HVAC contractor from a nearby HVAC business to come & assess the air quality systems. It turned out the supposedly new HVAC was nowhere near quality HVAC. The seer ratings were much lower than expected, her advice was that I get a portable space furnace & possibly sign up for an air conditioner repair plan. I took her advice because there was no way I was going to convince the property owner to undo the mess, let alone be able to afford the device myself.
