Re: Too cold in my appartment (17.9 grad).

I had wondered if there was any regulation that meant the landlord was obliged to provide heating, as oppossed to you buying a heater or two. But as you have a contract clause prohibiting you from using other appliances, I think there is an obligation that the heating system be maintained for you. Personally, I am happy with lower than you have, but my undestanding of modern heating/health situations, is that you should be able to have the indoor temp maintained at approx 23C.

Keep contacting the landlord/agency until they do something.
23C is ridiculously warm and would give headaches. We set nearly all our rooms at 20C which is the floor temp not the air temp that would be lower and even then we open the windows as often as possible to cool and freshen the air
