Legal Question in Landlord & Tenant Law in Ohio

My landlord is not doing his job, at all. We asked him 5 months ago to fix the broken light in the bedroom, it is still broken. Our heat was out for two weeks before we were actually able to get a hold of him to fix it, and it took him a couple more days. Our roof is leaking into the bathroom. He told us last week he would have someone over the next day. it has been almost 2 weeks, and no one has came to fix it.
