The heat is typically turned on in the residential communities in early October. Building temperatures are set at approximately 68-72 degrees Fahrenheit (20-22 degrees Celsius). Most buildings are heated with hot water, and you may be able to hear when the heating system is operating.
Yes, to some extent. You usually can adjust your heat about 2-3 degrees up or down. This allows buildings to maintain a consistent temperature of 68-72 degrees Fahrenheit (20-22 degrees Celsius).
You may adjust your heat by turning the control dial on your radiator (examples are pictured below). The "*" symbol turns off the radiator, meaning your room will be heated only as a result of its proximity to the hallway and other heated spaces in the building. "1" is the minimum heat level, and "5" is the maximum.
TOO WARM? Turn the dial down toward "*" to turn the radiator down or off. Open your door to increase the airflow from the hallway.
TOO COLD? Turn the dial up toward "5" to turn up the radiator. Be sure that your windows and door are closed, and that there is sufficient space for airflow around the radiator.
You may adjust your heat using the lever on the right-hand side of your wall-mounted temperature sensor.
TOO WARM? Push the lever DOWN to reduce your heat. Open your door to increase airflow from the hallway.
TOO COLD? Push the lever UP to increase your heat. Be sure your windows and door are closed, and there is sufficient space for airflow around the sensor.
