would you care to comment on that one Ken ?? How would you like to have your apt temp at 55 degrees from 10 pm to 6 am ?? That is the LEGAL limit that a slumlord is able to keep you at if the temp outside is 40 or below. HOWEVER, at 41 degrees outside, the slumlord, with the city's heat laws blessings, does not have to provide ANY heat at all which means your inside temp could go below 55.

Get real man !!! Don't take the landlords side when it comes to heat and hot water. There are many landlords that provide heat when the temp drops below 55 for the day and the night and then there are the slumlords who rely on the torture like laws that exist. Ken, be smart, stay far away from my boiler. I like heat when it's below 55 day and night and would not live any other way and I don't but I feel for the people who have to live under those horrible conditions of 55 degrees inside temp as being the law. What the people need to do is to have massive rent strikes and to refuse to pay ANY rent until the landlord gives you heat above the 55 inside limits. People are not worms as most landlords think they are.
