Heating season doesn't officially begin until end of this month, but just noticed the convectors are warm, so boilers must have kicked in to provide heat.

Have windows open, and no intention of opening up steam valves, just find it rather ridiculous. It's only 53F outside......

In New York City, the law requires that your landlord provide heat at the following levels from October 1 through May 31: From 6 am to 10 pm: If the outside temperature falls below 55 degrees, the inside temperature must be at least 68 degrees everywhere in your apartment.


No heat in my building. I am fine with that even though I left the living room window wide open and the apartment fell to 65 when I woke. Pulled out the fan and closed the window, Solar heat gain has pushed the temp up to 67 and I am typing in sweat pants and shirt. By noon it will be over 70 from the Sunshine.

What KK said!

My heat kicked in late last night. I was shocked. Didn't need it but with chilly days coming some it was great knowing its working.

I still have the AC on lowest setting, but I do find most people are putting on their heaters. I'm glad the summer weather is over.

Here's the thing; in office and increasingly many apartment buildings with central forced air heating, once HVAC system is switched from "AC" to "heat" that is it for season. It isn't easy to switch back and forth so if temps go up again people will roast. More so since many of these new apartment buildings like offices don't have windows which open.

I am not an old biddy...yet! But I have the heater turned on. Though it doesn't seem as cold as last night so I may have to turn it off.

Bedroom is 70 degrees. Might have to use the a/c to take it down a few degrees to a perfect sleeping temp.

I'm not an old biddy either but I've been cold since the day I was born. People have different tolerances. Don't let people make you feel bad if you need your heat on!
I will go to bed dreaming of a beautiful hot humid day like we had Wednesday......But sadly I think we are done with those days tills 2020.
