Can my landlord increase my rent because he decided to get an HVAC system?

It depends on your lease terms and local laws. Your rent should be a fixed rate, regardless of repairs/upgrades, for the term of the lease. At renewal, depending on your local rental laws, there could be a cap to how much of an increase the landlord can do. The landlord can increase at renewal
for any reason.

So read the lease you signed (legally binding
contract) and contact your local housing
authority/agency for more information and
assistance.
