DAYS: Between 6 AM and 10 PM, the outside temperature is below 56 degrees F and the temperature in your apartment is less than 68.
NIGHTS: Between 10 PM and 6 AM, the outside temperature is below 40 degrees F and the temperature in your apartment is less than 55. (Yes, these are ridiculous for people who don't go to bed by 10 PM.) If your indoor digital thermometer shows the temperature is below what is legally mandated,

(That's not their regular work.) If that doesn't help,
Fill out a requisition slip at the guard's desk in the lobby reporting the problem
IF Stellar still does not provide legally adequate heat, call 311. Email the complaint reference number to Sue.
