11 2017 Nassau County Department of Health Residential Heating Requirements

Residential Rental Heating Requirements

Mineola, NY - With colder temperatures, the Nassau County Department of Health reminds all landlords that they must provide heat to their tenants in accordance with the Nassau County Public Health Ordinance. The ordinance is in effect between October 1st and May 31st and requires that minimum temperatures be maintained indoors when the outside temperature drops below 55° F, as follows:

68° F from 6:00 a.m. to 10:00 p.m.
65° F from 10:00 p.m. to 6:00 a.m.

If these temperatures are not maintained, tenants should call the Nassau County Department of Health’s Bureau of Environmental Investigation weekdays from 9:00 a.m. to 4:45 p.m. at

(516) 227-9715. For evenings, weekends and holidays, call the Nassau County Department of Health After Hours emergency telephone line at (516)742-6154.

Residents renting an entire single family home are not covered by this ordinance. Residents of co-ops or condominium units with a centralized heating unit should first call their building manager or governing board of managers for assistance before contacting the Nassau County Department of Health. Co-op and condominium residents with individual heating units are responsible for their own heat.

The cities of Glen Cove and Long Beach as well as the villages of Cedarhurst, Great Neck, Great Neck Plaza, Lynbrook, Freeport, Rockville Centre and Hempstead enforce their own heating ordinances. Residents of these cities and villages may call their local Building Departments for assistance.
