Heating & Cooling

Heating & Cooling

In Leopold, air-conditioning and heating can be used in either the heating or the cooling season. Heat is provided via hot water and cooling via chilled water through a radiator above your closet ceiling. Your room’s temperature can be set from 68 – 74 °F and can be changed via a thermostat located on the wall (see photo). Temperature is controlled by the arrows on the thermostat. Press the up arrow to raise the temperature or the down arrow to lower it.

The unit is designed to respond once the air temperature is +/- 2 degrees from the desired room temperature. The upper left button is programming options for service technicians.

Tips

  • Try small adjustments first to avoid
    overheating/cooling
  • Do not push furniture, bedding, or belongings against convectors as this could block airflow
  • When in your room during the heating season, open curtains and blinds during the day to allow the sun to warm the room naturally and prevent air from being trapped against the window, and close them at night to decrease drafts — during the cooling season, do the reverse
  • Keep doors and windows closed when the heat or air conditioning is on
  • Consider using blankets and sweaters instead of turning up the heat
  • When possible, keep the room door open to promote air movement and introduce fresh air
  • Take wet clothing or towels to a laundry room to be washed/dried ASAP to reduce moisture
  • Run a fan to help circulate air
  • Fish tanks, plants, humidifiers, and diffusers can contribute to humidity/moisture levels in your room
