Hey guys, my room is way too hot.

How do I turn down my radiator? Or turn it off?

Here's a couple pics.

    You mean the one closest to the camera?

    Or, simply throw a real thick blanket on it until they get the valves fixed. Looks like a hot water radiator to me (I see PEX connections...)

    It's not so much a case of "You got what you paid for", as it is a matter of "You DIDN'T get what you DIDN'T pay for, and you're NOT going to get what you thought you were in the way of comfort". Borrowed from Heatboy.

    or replace the supply valve with a straight thermostatic valve body and head.
