Can I deduct rent for days without heat

Posted by frozen and mad on January 13, 1999 at 16:24:41:

For about 10 days during coldest part of the year I had no heat in apartment and had to run around staying with different friends each night. This not only disrupted my life but cost me a lot of money in transportation costs.
Am I allowed to deduct rent for those days? The lease has a line which says that I do not have to pay rent for time in which apt is unusable. What is the proper procedure here?
