I am renting a small trailer attached to a larger building, and many days my section gets no heat at all. He keeps the thermostat at 60 degrees, which he feels is adequate, but that leaves me at about 55 or with cold pipes when he leaves.
He says it's my responsibility to put plastic on the windows, seal the vents, holes in the door, broken window, etc. I explained that no matter what I do, if the heat's not on, nothing will make it warm. I don't feel it's my responsibility to make the unit heat-secure.
My business includes painting and giving classes and workshops. I haven't been able to do so because it's too cold. I wear layers and gloves just to keep warm, but I can't paint with gloves on. Keeping his building at 60 doesn't allow the heat to kick on, and I get nothing.
What should I do?
