If it's not already included then yes, if it's private rental. If not he'd have to go through the real estate and amend the lease for the extra amount

If there was no heating/cooling when you signed the lease then he is not under any obligation to install it now. You were aware there was none, and were happy to sign the lease with that knowledge. If there was heating/cooling when you signed the lease, and it's broken down, then yes he's obligated to fix it.

It depends. Was there heating and cooling In your residence when you signed your lease? If so, he is responsible for keeping it in order. He can’t however increase your rent until you sign a new lease, and that can’t happen until your current one expires.

If it was advertised as such, yes he is responsible for fixing it. He can’t increase your rent until the next lease.

Only in a new contract he can't change the existing terms of contract. So at next lease renewal yes.

 Just be aware, he may wait until the next lease period to install the heating & cooling

 Actually if it is faulty and included in entry report as working is is classed as an inclusion he must fix it as the property must be in working order. Apply to qcat or Rta dispute resolution
