Tenant’s mistake almost cost the HVAC unit’s efficiency

A few days ago, I started servicing all of the AC units inside of apartment building 1, and I work as a service engineer for a large apartment complex. This specific lot has 12 apartment buildings and there are 16 apartments inside of each building. However before the summer season began, I inspected every single AC component in each of the apartments on the property, however last week, I started with building 1. I only made it through many AC services, before I found a major problem. The renter had a large clock placed in front of the door of the heating, ventilation, and A/C unit. The door has slats because there has to be correct airflow in order for the heating, ventilation, and A/C component to officially work, and when I realized that the renter had a large piece of furniture in front of the door, I had to move it. I called one of the property workers to help me. He met me inside of the apartment where we carefully moved the furniture. Inside the heating, ventilation, and A/C closet I found a wonderful deal of dust and indoor pollutants. Since there was barely any air flow, the heating, ventilation, and A/C component was genuinely dirty. The unit was only a year old and the motor was already making a slight sound. The director sent a note to the renter of that apartment after I left. She told the renter not to place the furniture in front of the HVAC closet or he would be responsible for any repairs.
