Maintenance Tips

In the winter time, your ceiling fans should turn clockwise on the lowest speed to draw cooler air up to mix with the lighter warm air to make it easier to keep your apartment warm and make your unit work less. We recommend keeping your thermostat at 67 degrees during the winter to keep your heating bill down. Keep your bedroom and bathroom doors open.

If you’re going to smoke on your patio or balcony, please be sure to use a sturdy ashtray made of glass or metal. We’ve gotten reports of people using cups or cans as ashtrays — that’s a dangerous fire hazard! Thanks for being courteous to your neighbors at Pheasant Run.
