Please read this notice carefully as specific action on your part may be required.
In order to install the new roof, any A/C unit not currently mounted on a “stand” must be removed and reinstalled on a stand. The attached list provides the evaluation of each A/C unit by Abbott Air. The 5 units highlighted in bold red are required to upgrade their A/C unit since they contain the now banned R-22 refrigerant. Other units designated with a red evaluation are at risk and may not remain operable after removal and reinstallation. Abbott Air has provided group pricing if 20 or more owners choose to upgrade their A/C (low cost estimate). If you choose to have Abbott Air replace your A/C unit:
Please contact AJ at Abbott Air directly at (941) 460-8241 no later than July 30, 2021 and reference the Tamarind Roofing Project. Owners in the B8 Building should contact Abbott
Air no later than July 23rd!
Owners are free to choose any supplier they wish but must ensure that any company they choose can support the roofing project schedule (updates will be provided by e-mail as they become available – given current supply chain issues it would be wise to order new equipment as early as possible).
For safety reasons, every unit will need to be accessed in order to remove power from their A/C unit. Notice will be provided by physically placing a note on each door 48 hours in advance. No other notification will be provided.
Urgent Schedule Update
Due to inclement weather, we have been informed that the start date for re-roofing the D1 Building has been delayed by 2 weeks; the new start date is estimated at July 26. As previously announced – schedules will continue to be variable dependent on weather, staffing and construction issues – sorry for any inconvenience!
At the June meeting your Board of Directors voted to have the Association cover all costs of removing and reinstalling any A/C unit not currently on a stand. As per past practice, owners are responsible for the cost of installation if they are replacing their A/C and this cost is included in the estimates provided. The roofing project is critical to Tamarind Gulf & Bay and our commitment to this project has already resulted in a savings of over $50,000 in insurance premiums. We appreciate your cooperation and support as we make the improvements necessary to ensure Tamarind’s future!
