WHAT IS HEAT?
Housing Early Assistance Tool (HEAT) creates an easy on-line experience to connect you, the Service Member, with your future destination and offers an on-line venue to obtain housing assistance prior to a PCS transfer. HQ Air Force Housing has successfully implemented HEAT across the AF Enterprise so members can reach out to installations when preparing for transition. Installations are accessible through the HEAT tool across CONUS and most OCONUS installations. Members should use HEAT when preparing to transfer to their new assignment.

At Incirlik AB we strive to create an inclusive environment that cultivates the development and training of Airmen. The Air Force recognizes that the management of Unaccompanied Housing (UH) facilities is critical to an Airman's development process. UH is a personal residence and we aspire to provide a modern, functional, well maintained and comfortable home, as well as promote pride, professionalism and personal dignity. UH is provided for unaccompanied Airmen in the ranks of E-1 to O-5. Each Airman is provided a private sleeping room, furnishings, bed linens and supplies required for comfortable living. Room arrangement may vary depending on location.UH residences are fully furnished. Government provided furniture may not be removed from assigned quarters to accommodate privately owned furnishings. Residents should carefully consider this prior to shipment of personal property. Excessive furnishings in UH rooms can be a fire hazard and may subject the member to additional storage or shipping costs. Alteration or modification to government furniture is not authorized. Residents are subject to financial liability for any damages to furnishings for which they are determined responsible.See Referral and Relocation Assistance for a list of restrictions at Incirlik AB.Base Specific PolicyAppliancesThe 39th Civil Engineer Squadron replaces and services installed ranges, refrigerators and microwaves.
