It's October 1 and that means "heat season" is underway in the city.

The city requires building owners to provide heat and hot water to tenants depending on outside temperatures.

If the outside temperature falls below 55 degrees from 6 a.m. and 10 p.m. apartments must be heated to at least 68 degrees.

If it is below 40 degrees outside between 10 p.m. and 6 a.m. apartments must be at least 55 degrees inside.

Tenants should notify their building owner, managing agent or super if the heat goes out.

Heat season runs through May 31.

For all heat related complaints, call 311. ClientIP:, UserAgent: CCBot/2.0 ( Profile: TWCSAMLSP
