It's also very difficult to get it to "warm" rather than either extreme. When we first moved in we brought up this issue with the landlords and they responded by turning the boiler temperature up. I'm not sure what the problem is, but we'll be moving out of this apartment in a few months anyway so I will just try to be more careful.
We have the same problem with our water. If I want to have a bath I have to let the very hot water run slowly until the water fills the tub to a certain level, then I have to add the cold to bring the hot water in the tub down to a comfortable temperature. We can't just get a mixture that comes out warm and stays that way long enough to fill the tub. Getting a shower is a little easier for some reason. I can adjust the hot and cold faucets to the right degrees and have it come out of the shower nozzle just right, but it better be a quick shower. But when I'm stiff and achy, I like to soak in the tub.
I was so much older then, I'm younger than that now. Dylan
