If your apartment is too hot in the winter, DON'T OPEN THE WINDOWS! This is the first reaction most residents have and it is incorrect.  By opening the windows you are causing the heating system to waste energy and create more pollution.  You also could be causing other apartments in your building to be cold.

The correct thing to do is to submit a maintenance request to have your radiators properly adjusted.  This is called balancing the heat system so that all the apartments in the building heat to the same temperature.  Click here for specific recommendations about hot and cold apartments in the winter.
