Technically?

When you can't stand it anymore or until the temp gets below your pipes freezing.

I still have my AC on. (in NJ)

I always thought landlords had to supply heat between October 15 and April 15 if the temperature went below 50 degrees. Not sure if that's correct but must have heard it somewhere, sometime.

It depends on the temp. A certain temp must be maintained inside also (there's one for day and another for night). I think the outside temp is 55. If I find the law, I'll post it.

Heat requirements
If your lease requires the landlord to provide heat, the landlord must give you the amount of heat required by the state codes and the local town or city ordinance. Under the state housing codes, from October 1 to May 1, the landlord must provide enough heat so that the temperature in the apartment is at least 68 degrees from 6 a.m. to 11 p.m. Between the hours of 11 p.m. and 6 a.m., the temperature in the apartment must be at least 65 degrees. Cite: N.J.A.C. 5:10-14 et seq. and N.J.A.C. 5:28-1.12(m). Local health codes cover parts of the year not covered by housing codes.

Heat requirements are enforced by your town.
