Has your building turn on the radiator heat already?

Buildings have to make sure internal temperature is at least 62 degrees indoors. In practice this means that usually if the overnight temps dip into low 40s, they turn on the radiators

Looks like we’re talking about different halves of the same law.

My thermostat reads 70. But I’m freezing my butt off wearing 2 sweaters in door. Is it all psychosomatic? When it’s 70 in July I found it too hot. What gives….

We turned it on a month ago

My building landlord said it’s been on since October 1. I have a bunch of emails back and forth complaining about it. Particularly brutal trying to get a 4-year-old ready for school in the morning in a cold apartment.

Just turned ours on last night

Nope but I’ve also never had a baseboard radiator until this apartment so maybe there’s just a switch I need to flip? Anyway, my apartment runs hot so I don’t need it yet.

I'm deciding between two flatshares - one is my dream location (central, lovely leafy yet buzzing area, 10 min walk to work) and a great room, and it's cheap. Second is two tube stops out, smaller room (as in, no space for a desk), more expensive, but has much more common space and importantly, the guy I'd be sharing with seemed fun / sporty / outgoing like me.

Which one should I go for? I love the first place but maybe the cool dude / his friends could be my new family in London!
