Maintaining and repair of the hydronic heater is the homeowner’s responsibility.

Each unit has an inside 70amp circuit panel. But sometimes the master breaker for a unit can be tripped. You cannot turn the power back on from the inside breakers. The master breaker is located in a locked cabinet in each building. If you accidentally have this breaker trip, contact the property manager, a Board member or a building monitor. These cabinets also have the electrical boxes for land line phones, internet and TV. Though each vendor is suppose to have keys to these cabinet, some new vendors may not.
