Floor to Ceiling Pipe in NYC
I’m a first time renter and have no experience in steam heating systems. I live on the top floor of a 4 floor building and today, the steam pipes turned on and my room keeps on getting progressively hotter and hotter; even with fully open windows. I have a floor to ceiling steam pipe with a valve near the top that keeps spitting out hot air every 10-15 minutes and it makes my entire room unlivable. Is there any way I can shut this pipe off or should I contact management about it? I don’t think I can keep living in an 80°+ room the entire winter.
