Can I get out of a retail lease since the landlordbrokeit by not giving me a working air conditioner for 9 months?

I have a retail lease for my tutoring business that operates primarily when the students are out of school or camp.generally from 3 pm-5:30 pm. When I signed it the landlord/property manager stated in the lease that he would replace the broken air conditioning unit.. Then after I was in he said he was going to install central air conditioning instead. Well the central air conditioning did not work for 9 months. It was over 80 degrees in here after 2:30 for 4 of those spring/summer/fall months in direct afternoon sunlight. I lost students and tutors.
