The Heat Is On!

|Daniel and Jamie from the maintenance staff keep the boilers running and the buildings warm!|
Each building has 4 – 8 boilers that fire in succession as demand dictates. The boilers are fueled by natural gas which heats the water, which is then distributed throughout the radiant heat pipes that are located in the registers around the base of the walls in your home. Radiant heating is an efficient way of heating your home and also has the advantage of not blowing air around, which is a nice benefit to those with allergies.
As the heat radiates, it should not be restricted. Make sure that you are keeping furniture at least 6 inches away from the registers and keep the register flaps in an open position. Once it starts to get below 45 degrees, make sure your windows and patio doors stay shut so that the heat pipes donâ€™t freeze and burst. We know you will have a wonderful winter staying nice and toasty thanks to radiant heating!
