What to do if my landlord is not providing heat, especially when there is a child living in the apartment?

Question Details:

We have been having heat problems since moving in back in 03/10. Every 2 weeks, heat would stop working and all they ever do is put more oil in it. Then it stop working again 2 weeks later. When we called someone to come fix it, we were told that they didn't get paid to keep coming out after work hours, so we had to use stove to stay warm. Now, the heat went out again 5 days ago, and we still have no heat. We are being told that owner is being cheap and refuses to change the boiler in basement, which why we are having heat problems. I have a 4 year-old child.
