Are there warm apartments in cold climates?

I live in the SF Bay area and I'm thinking about moving to colder climates at some point, but for various reasons I can't handle a cold ambient temperature inside my home, even if I bundle up. In colder areas (specifically New England and the Midwest), how easy/possible is it to find apartments that are well-heated (perhaps buildings with a whole-building radiator system?) or other situations where I can have a warm (68-70 degree) home without paying through the nose for utilities?

landlord tenant law in the US regarding utilities

Is it legal for landlords in the United States and the State of Colorado to pay the utilities for a building and then evenly divide the sum between all of the apartments? Someone told me that there was law against this but I have been unable to locate it. They said that essentially all units must be metered or the rent can be raised to "include utilities" but that they could not pass utilities on without metering apartments so that each pays their share.
