A: Georgia, landlords are generally required to provide essential services, including working air conditioning, to tenants. If your central AC unit has been non-functional for over 30 days and the landlord has not made any effort to repair or provide an alternative solution, it may be considered a violation of the implied warranty of habitability.

The implied warranty of habitability is a legal concept that requires landlords to maintain rental properties in a livable condition. This means that the premises must have basic necessities, including a functional heating and cooling system, to ensure the health and safety of the tenants.
