Do landlords have to provide AC?

Do landlords have to provide AC?

No. The only exception is if at the time of the signing of the original lease, or at renewal, or at initial occupancy (if an at will tenancy) there was an operational A/C unit or system, the landlord must keep that unit operational or replace the unit.

As a side note many landlords even prohibit the installation of a window unit, out of fear of poor installation or for liability issues.
