Dh and i are renting an older style house, double brick with air con in the lounge room. It dosn't usually cool the whole house as it's not powerful enough. It's just a sit in the window one.
OUr problem is, the bedroom (main and sometimes the girls) gets so hot that we have 3 fans going and are still sweating. It's gotten to the point that we've dragged mattreses into the loungeroom and slept under the air con.
We live in Sydney south so it's not like we are out west where they really feel the heat.
Last night it was so hot that non of us in the house got a good rest.
I want to call the real estate and ask about getting shutters or another air con put in.
Do i have a right to ask for this? I mean we just want something to help with the heat in the room.
We put a thermometor in the room and it measures 39* in the room. It has blinds and curtains but thats not helping, it's like a sauna.
Should i ask? I feel awful but we can't live like this anymore, It's to hot and we need something done. The rooms get the afternoon midday sun, and the temp just sky rockets.
Anyone? Do i have a right to ask for something to be done?
