Heat In Your Student Rental

Ahh fall! The leaves are changing, the geese start migrating, and students all around Western campus trade their Birkenstocks for Uggs and tank tops for a cozy sweater! Something very common students will find in their off-campus rentals in London is that they have issues with getting the heat on when the air gets a wee bit nippy. We recommend you make sure you have your account set up with Enbridge. This is the company that supplies gas to your unit that heats your furnace. A lot of students assume it’s already on because they’ve been living here for a few months now. BUT, if you have an electric hot water tank, which some of our apartments and townhouses do, then you won’t technically have needed gas yet. So, make sure to check that now, because they have to come turn the gas on, and they’ll need into your rental to make sure everything is ok. This process can take time on their end, so not a bad idea to do that now! Also, just make sure your furnace is actually switched on (most have a switch above the normal lightswitch in the utility room), and make sure the thermostat is set to 'heat', with the fan on 'auto'.


Stay warm!
