What temperature must my apartment be kept at?
Generally, every owner and operator of any building who rents, leases or lets one or more dwelling units or sleeping units on terms, either expressed or implied, to furnish heat to the occupants thereof shall supply heat to maintain a temperature of not less than 68 degrees Fahrenheit in all habitable rooms, bathrooms and toilet rooms measured at a distance of 3 feet from the exterior walls, 5 feet above floor level. In addition, the heating facilities must be operated to protect the building equipment and systems from freezing. The exception to this is that an owner or operator of any building who rents, leases or lets one or more dwelling units or sleeping units and the occupant thereof under a lease or tenancy at will may enter into an agreement for the owner or operator to provide heat at less than 68 degrees Fahrenheit subject to specific provisions.
