    Tenant shall make sure the AC is accessible for proper installation by placing AC by the window where it will be installed.
    AC power cord must be able to reach an electrical outlet. No extension cords are allowed.

    Tenant shall be responsible for moving any obstacles from the window area, where the AC unit will be installed.

    Inoperable or damaged AC unit(s) will not be installed and removed from the premises.

    Maintenance staff will place a sticker on every authorized AC prior to installation.
