Northwood IV or V Electricity and Heating



Your electricity costs are included in your rent.

Some electrical outlets are controlled by switches on the wall. If an outlet does not work, look for a switch nearby and turn it on. If the outlet still doesn’t work, check the circuit breaker panel. If a circuit breaker is off, contact FIXIT.


Your heating costs are included in the cost of your Northwood IV or V rent.

Each Northwood IV and V apartment has its own individual furnace and adjustable thermostat. The furnace is designed to function best when kept between 65 and 75 degrees Fahrenheit. Please keep floor vents clean and clear for maximum efficiency.

Thermostats may not be set to a temperature higher than 75 degrees Fahrenheit. Overriding or tampering with the thermostats could create a hazard and is a violation of your contract.

Please do not set thermostats below 55 degrees Fahrenheit during the heating season. This could cause water lines to freeze.
