Adjust the room temperature to suit you and air your apartment efficiently.
You do not want to freeze at home, but setting the radiator to scorching also has its limits. A suitable room temperature is between 18 and 22 degrees Celcius. In the bedroom and kitchen, the temperature may even be lower. You sleep better when it is a little cooler, and using the cooker and oven warms the kitchen. You can adjust the room temperature with the radiator thermostat.
Radiators work best when there are no pieces of furniture or thick curtains in front of them. Clean the radiators regularly. When it is time to bleed the radiator, it makes an annoying noise, it gurgles or water leaks out, please submit a defect notification and leave the work to our maintenance staff.
The bathroom radiator is usually connected to the building’s hot water system and is warm all year round to enhance the drying of the bathroom. If such a radiator is cold even when the valve is in the open position, please submit a defect notification. To prevent the valve from clogging, you can periodically close and open the valve briefly. Always make sure that the valve is left open. The bathroom radiators connected to the building’s heating system are cool outside the heating season.
Air your apartment efficiently
Air your apartment quickly and efficiently with cross draught if possible. Efficient airing is especially important during the heating season. Leaving a window or balcony glass ajar for a day doubles the heat consumption of the apartment.
Those allergic to pollen should limit ventilation at the start of the pollen season in spring, as pollen can be easily transmitted indoors through open windows and doors.
Thick curtains help keep cold air outside the window. On a sunny day, it is advisable to close the blinds, as they prevent the apartment from needlessly overheating.
