Heat Season: Oct. 1 through May 31 each year

(Illustration from the NYC Dept. of Housing Preservation and Development)

Landlords must provide heat to tenants from October 1st through May 31st each year under these conditions:

DAY:  6 AM to 10 PM - If the outside temperature is below 55° F, the inside temperature must be at least 68° F.  

NIGHT:  10 PM to 6 AM - The inside temperature must be at least 62°F regardless of the outside temperature. 

Measure the indoor temperature with a digital thermometer in the middle of your room. If the temperature on that thermometer is below the legal limit, file a 311 complaint.  Then send the complaint number, including your name, apartment, and the time, date, and temperature to CPGTenAssoc  at  gmail  dot com.
