Quick Tip: Apartment Heating

Cliche Paris Radiator

The French and their rules. With winter coming I thought I'd drop this. There are rules for temperature in houses. If your building is too hot or too cold the landlord has to fix it:

In general, heating is considered insufficient when it does not achieve 18°C ​​in the center of each room. In the event of overheating or underheating, the judge may in particular impose penalties (on a case-by-case basis) for the compensation of the damage suffered by the occupant of the accommodation. The steps to be taken vary if the dwelling is inhabited by a tenant or if it is inhabited by its owner and is part of a co-ownership.

More info can be found here. If you experience a problem with your landlord, you need to contact ANIL, and you will need a French speaker for that.
