Heating Season Guidelines

Please note the following items to maximize heat and safety during the heating season, officially starting September 27, 2022. Remove all AC units from windows and cancel with CTC's office by October 15.

Apartment Heat

Heat Activation

Temperature + Adjusting Thermostats

Maximize Heat + Building Safety

Do Not Block Radiators

Keep furniture, bedding, and drapery away from the radiation units as possible, and especially do not cover the radiator with any materials. You will get the most heat from a free-flowing radiator. 

Space Heaters Prohibited

Electric space heaters are not allowed in apartments at CTC due to the risk of fire. Heat is provided for you as part of your rental payment, and maintenance can troubleshoot any issues if you believe your heat is insufficient. 

Close Windows + Doors

Monitor Humidity 

Immediately Report Heat Issues

If your apartment's temperature seems to be out of range (68-72° F / 20-22.2° C), or you are experiencing a heat issue, please report to the office:

Emergency Heat Issues
  • No heat/cold apartment temperature below 68° F (20° C) is of critical priority to our maintenance team; call 651-646-7526 for immediate support both during and after business hours.
Non-Emergency Heat Maintenance
  • If temperatures continuously stay above 68° F (20° C), place a maintenance request for a technician to check on the issue within the following business day.
Reminder: In the event of any ‘critical’ or emergency situation (i.e. water leak, lack of proper heating, smell of gas/smoke, etc.), call 651-646-7526 for immediate support from CTC’s Maintenance Team during and after-hours.

Notify Office of Extended Home Absence

Please email the office, providing your address and dates all household members will be gone, if you plan to leave your apartment during the heating season for more than 5 days so we can take the proper precautions in your absence. View all 5+ day absence reminders in our Winter Newsletter (2022).
