Thermally Controlled

Prolonged exposure to excessively hot or cold weather can harm the health of a family. In Nebraska, where we have both hot summers and winters that stay well below freezing, it is important that families are able to thermally control their homes to protect against both hot and cold. 

Landlords in Nebraska are legally required to maintain “in good and safe working order and condition” heating and air conditioning. If your landlord has declined to provide these things you have the right to seek legal advice. Legal Aid of Nebraska is one group in Nebraska that is able to assist tenants.

Controlada Termicamente:

La exposición prolongada al clima excesivamente cálido o frio puede dañar la salud de una familia. En Nebraska, donde tenemos veranos calurosos e inviernos que se mantienen debajo del punto de congelación, es importante que las familias puedan controlar térmicamente sus casas contra el frio y calor.

Los propietarios en Nebraska están legalmente obligados a mantener la calefacción y aire acondicionado “en buena estado y buen funcionamiento” Si su arrendador se ha negado a proporcionarle estas cosas, usted tiene el derecho de buscar asesoramiento legal. La ayuda Legal de Nebraska es un grupo en Nebraska que puede ayudar a los inquilinos.
