Heating & Cooling

Heating & Cooling

In Phillips, heat is provided via hot water and cooling via chilled water through a radiator near your window. Your room’s temperature can be set from 65 – 75 °F. The convector is centrally controlled and the fan coil unit is controlled by a dial under the hinged door (see photo). The toggle switch should be set to “auto”. The dial can then be turned to the left (counterclockwise) to decrease the temperature or to the right (clockwise) to increase the temperature.

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
