On a day that’s 52 degrees and feels much colder, it’s time to review the state’s heating requirements. You can find the Minimum Heating Guidelines for workplaces at Law About Winter Heating. Basically, they require heat to be provided ranging from 50-60 degrees in foundries to 66-68 degrees in schools between October 15 and May 15.

Contrast that with the much warmer requirements for residential property in the State Sanitary Code. 105 CMR 410.201 requires temperatures of at least 64 degrees at night and 68 degrees during the day. Residential heat also has to be provided for a longer period of time: from September 15 to June 15. There can be exceptions, so be sure to read the regulation for details.
