Landlords must provide one or more fixed heaters that can directly heat the main living room. The heater must be an acceptable type, and must meet the minimum heating capacity required for your living room.
The World Health Organization (WHO) recommends a minimum indoor temperature of 18˚C. By installing a heater that can reach this temperature on the coldest days of the year, tenants will be able to keep warm all year round.
How will I know if I’ve got the right heater? There are online calculators available, however, one of the easiest and safest ways to ensure you get it right is to simply contact a HPAC specialist who will visit your home and provide you with an accurate quote and recommendations.
