Heating Season Reminders

Heating season will officially begin Monday, October 8, 2018. 

To be the most efficient during the heating season, please note the following:

  • All Air Conditioners must be removed from your windows by Sunday, October 7, 2018.
    • Charges will continue unit you notify the office of removal. 
    • Email CTC stating your address and the date you stopped using/removed the AC. No paperwork, no trip to the office. 
  • All storm door windows should be closed 
  • Except for short periods of time, all apartment windows must be kept closed with the sashes properly locked to prevent heat from escaping. Heating pipes can freeze and crack in cold weather if windows are left open. If windows are open due to negligence and pipes burst, residents are 100% responsible for the cost of repairs. 
  • All apartment window blinds should be raised daily and any excess moisture on window or window sill should be wiped down to prevent mold and/or damage. 
  • Please limit the use of humidifiers I your apartment. Be aware of the humidity levels of your apartment. If they are above 45% please take appropriate measures to lower the humidity. 
    • Immediately stop any use of humidifier
    • Start the use of a dehumidifier. 
    • Reduce boiling of water 
  • Electric space heaters are not allowedin apartments at CTC. Heat is provided for you as part of your rental payment. If you have concerns about the temperature of your apartment, or how to properly use your thermostats, please let CTC Maintenance know.
  • Normal temperature of your apartment should range between 68-72 degrees Fahrenheit (20-22.2 degrees Celsius). Adjust your thermostat accordingly if it is too hot or too cold. If it seems to be higher or lower than this range, you can request a work order to have Maintenance check on your specific apartment. 
  • Keep furniture and bedding away from the radiation units as possible. You will get the most heat from a free-flowing radiator. 
  • Do not allow any drapery material to cover your radiator. 
  • Always let CTC Maintenance know if you are experiencing problems with your heat. 
  • Always let CTC Management know if you plan to leave your apartment during the heating season for more than 5 days.
