I haven't had heat since Monday - December 12, 2011. A new heater was installed on Monday - December 19, 2011. The electrician connected the wires, turned on the thermostat. It set off my smoke detectors and we smelled fumes. He called the guy that installed the heater. He informed me that the guy said to lift up my windows and turned off the thermostat. He'll be out here tomorrow meaning today. It is now 4:53pm. My friend called the real estate and spoke to the owner he's telling him to turn back on the thermostat. I am not risking my life nor my daughter's life for something that I know its not safe. I thought went a new system such as a heater gets installed some one from the gas company suppose to come and inspect it. The owner also told me that I can get out. I have resided in this apartment it will be fifteen years this February. PLEASE HELP US and tell me what can I do. Thank you for any assistance that you can give me.
