GREENBURGH, N.Y. — Greenburgh residents don't seem to have a hard time staying warm despite the recent cold streak.
Heat complaints have been low this winter despite the cold snaps that chilled Greenburgh the past few weeks, said Greenburgh Deputy Building Inspector Zacarolli. While there have been fewer than 10 complaints so far this winter, the building department is used to seeing four times that number in past winters, he said.
The building department has not yet determined why the number of complaints are so low, Zacarolli said. The complaints were scattered around town and not focused on one specific building or area, he added.
According to the Westchester County Sanitary Code, whenever the outdoor temperature falls below 55 degrees, rented homes and apartments must be heated to at least 68 degrees between 6 a.m. and 1 p.m. and to at least 60 degrees overnight.
Those with insufficient heat are advised to contact their landlords and, if the problem persists, to call the Greenburgh Building Department at 914-993-1562.
While the temperature may not be a worry, Greenburgh residents will have to try to stay dry on Friday. Early morning rain will turn into snow by noon, according to Accuweather.com. Between 3 to 6 inches of snow are expected to accumulate through Friday night in Greenburgh.
