Re: What's the law on heating temp for tenant's apartm by Anonymous on November 9, 2017 @05:55

Clearly you have no idea or knowledge about how measurements are taken and confirmed. Most Health Codes require that such temperatures be taken by the following means;

"Temperature is measured 3 feet from the floor and 2-3 feet from each exterior wall. Temperature should be taken by a calibrated digital device that can register and record ambient air temperature".

"Ambient air temperature shall be maintained continuously over a period of time without fluctuating below the minimum required temperature for the given time period".

Other requirements may also include;

"Proper weatherstripping of window and doors, sealing of gaps and spaces that allow heat to escape may be required in order to meet minimum heating requirements".

"Heating equipment shall be in such operating condition as to provide adequate heat and hot water as required to meet minimum codes".

To be sure the landlord is in compliance, the landlord should be following what procedures the Health Department uses.
