What should you do if your apartment feels chilly?
Oak Park Apartments recommends 3 simple steps that you as a tenant can easily do to provide instant results:
- Remove any and all window air conditioning units!
- Close all storm windows.
- Open your radiator valves, righty tight-y, lefty loose-y, to control the amount of hot water/steam that circulates through each of your radiators.
Addressing those 3 major heat-draining issues will help you to be more cozy in your apartment but remember, it is still winter in the mid-west so layering your clothing is necessary to be warm even indoors – a t-shirt and shorts will simply not cut it!
When a slick layer of ice is coating a majority of the outdoor surfaces, Oak Park Apartments strongly advises its’ tenants to use the front hallways/entryways and avoid back porch stairs, which tend to freeze first.
