They put seals over the temperature controls.

I got home from work last week, and there was a lockbox over the temperature control in my apartment, i didn’t feel if I was aggravated about the lockbox, or that someone was in my home when I wasn’t there, however no 1 had the right to enter my home without notice.

I called the superintendent and asked who was in my home while I was gone, he said he been there, and he had installed lockboxes over all the temperature controls in the home building, the owner of the building was complaining about the energy use, and he thought it was from the HVAC system.

He set all the temperature controls at sixty-six, and the lockboxes prevented the renters from changing the hot and cold temperatures. I was cold that night, and remembered my dad had given myself and others a space heating system for Christmas. I took it out of the closet and jammed it in… For the first time in a week, I slept comfortably because I was warm. I was sure I was going to get something from the superintendent because I was using more electricity, however I heard nothing. Instead of chopping the lockbox and turning up the temperature control, I was getting boiling with my space heater. I even ended up going to the store and buying 2 more space oil heating systems for the rest of the apartment. The owner of the home building didn’t want us using his furnace to stay warm, so I got smart and used space heaters, along with most of the other renters… When I said something about the space oil heating systems to my friend, she spread the word, and the local home center was soon our of space heaters.
