The heating system in the house, together with the ventilation, should contribute to a good indoor climate in your apartment. It should always be at least 20°C in your apartment, but the temperature can vary depending on the outdoor temperature.

With a sudden change to colder weather, the heating system may need a few days to adjust to colder weather. If you cover the thermostat with curtains or place furniture in front of the radiators, the thermostat will not work properly. So think about this when decorating your home.

If you feel cold in your apartment, do the following

  1. Wait a few days for the heating system to adjust to the change in weather.
  2. Make sure that furniture, curtains or radiator covers do not cover the radiators as this prevents the air from circulating and spreading the heat in the room. It is also important not to cover the thermostat that senses the temperature in the room.
  3. Make sure the vents in your apartment are open and clean. If a vent is clogged or covered, the ventilation can stop working and the heat will not spread in the apartment. Closed vents can also lead to cold drafts from doorways, letterboxes, etc. The vents in your apartment can be located at the radiator, at the window or on the wall.
  4. Measure the temperature by placing a thermometer, preferably digital, in the middle of the room 1 meter above the floor. If the thermometer reads below 20°C for several days in a row, please make a maintenance request.


Why are radiators cold?

The thermostat on the radiator senses the indoor temperature and regulates it continuously. This is why you may feel that the radiators are cold even though it is cold outside in the fall and winter.

Cold radiators can also be due to the fact that the outdoor temperature has just changed. It can take a while for the heating system to adjust to the colder weather.

Keep in mind that the radiators turn off and may feel cool if they have reached the set temperature.

Why are the elements cool at the bottom?

The fact that the radiator is cooler at the bottom and warmer at the top is completely normal. It has to do with how the heat circulates in the radiator. Do not cover the radiators with furniture, thick curtains or radiator covers.

Why are floors, doors, windows and corners cold?

Because of the way the house is built, it may be a little colder at floors, doors, windows and corners. But it can also be due to poor or missing sealing strips. If you think this is the problem, make a maintenance request and our property caretaker will check the sealing strips.

Why is it colder in the apartment at night?

It may feel a bit cooler at night because lights, TVs, stoves, computers and other heat-generating devices are turned off. We do not lower the indoor temperature at night.

There are sounds coming from my radiators, what should I do?

If you hear whistling or noise in the heating elements, or if water runs out of the element or valve, you should make a maintenance request. Your property caretaker will take care of venting the heating elements if necessary.
