    Steven’s Answer

    The landlord-tenant act also puts the responsibility for the AC on the landlord. But your remedies are limited. You can do a five day written demand and leave at the end of that time without any further responsibility under the lease. But that is extreme for some people. You can also sue for damages, whether you stay there or not. You need to see a lawyer to discuss your options in more detail.
