air conditioners

Posted by Matthew Feldman on May 29, 1997 at 12:39:19:


My questions concerns air conditioners in a rent-stabilized apartment where the electricity is included with the rent.

I know that the landlord can charge $20 per month if I install an A/C, (this a rip-off at $240 a year, but thats DHCR for you) but my landlord also requires that the unit has an Energy Efficency Rating of 10.3 or higher (which would save the landlord money). Needless to say, very few A/C's meet that standard, and the ones that do are very expensive. Can my landlord legally set that standard? I called DHCR's Manhattan office, and they didn't know!!!

Thank you.
