You can try making a case for it, but unless your lease specifically says you get an ac and you can make a very strong case that this one is broken, you may have trouble convincing your landlord to do anything. What may be a better option is to simply buy a new ac yoursef (you can get a pretty spiffy one for $150 or so these days) and convince your landlord to install it. Buying one may be expensive, but it sounds like you'll recoup the difference pretty quickly in saved electric costs.

: Brooklyn, NY - I moved into my apt on July 1, signed lease, including a/c. I got my electric bill for that month, $189!!! It's a small one bedroom on the fifth floor of a 5 unit dwelling. The a/c works horribly, especially during the awful heatwave, and obviously is inefficient. I want the landlord to replace the unit. Do I have a right to ask for this?
