Like all other Pennsylvania residents, tenants in Philadelphia have certain rights when it comes to the heating of their residence. Landlords are responsible for maintaining the safety of their units, including maintenance of heating units. If a landlord fails to do so, a tenant should take the following steps:
- Give their landlord written notification of the problem and request for it to be fixed.
- Allow a reasonable amount of time for the landlord to solve the problem. Heat in the winter is considered an important utility and deserves a prompt response.
- Record evidence if the problem is not solved. This may include keeping track of the temperature inside the residence, keeping utility bills or shut-off notifications, getting estimates for repairs, and keeping copies of any written notifications to the landlord.
If the landlord still refuses to fix the problem, the tenant may do the following:
- Pay for repairs or utilities and deduct it from their rent.
- Withhold rent.
- Get a court order for the landlord to fix the problem.
- Take the issue to court.
- Move without paying further rent. In order to avoid being sued for additional rent, a tenant should notify their landlord of their move and the reasons for it, as well as keep records of all previous efforts to amend the situation.
Alternative Energy in Philadelphia
Philadelphia, like many cities, has a plan to harness alternative energy to reduce its emissions and the city's impact on the environment. A big push in the city is to encourage residents and businesses to use solar energy. This initiative will be furthered by the building of a large solar energy plant by the Philadelphia-based Green Energy Capital Partners. The plant will encompass an estimated 40,000 solar panels on 100 acres of land.
State Aid for Upgrading Energy Systems
The Keystone HELP Energy Efficiency Loan and Rebate Program is one state incentive designed to help residents upgrade their home's energy systems. The program gives residents rebates or loans to improve the energy efficiency of their home through installation of insulation, more efficient heating systems, and geothermal systems. This program is only available to Pennsylvania residents whose combined household income is under $150,000 a year. More information can be found by calling 1-888-232-3477.
Philadelphia experiences all four seasons distinctly but its temperatures do not reach either extreme. Its average daily lows in the winter dip into the mid- twenties and its average high temperatures in the summer hover around the mid-eighties. During the winter, snowfall is common in the city's northern suburbs but often turns into rain in the city center. Wet, windy winters make effective heating systems an important comfort to Philadelphians.
