Multifamily Building Residents
Is your building a comfortable place to live?
As the tenant of a multifamily building, you probably have a pretty good idea about how efficiently your building uses energy. Think about the following:
- Was your building built before 1973?
- Is your apartment too cold in the winter and too hot in the summer?
- Are your rooms drafty?
- Do the outside walls feel too cold or too hot?
- Does your rent seem excessively high due to heating and/or electricity costs?
NYSERDA can help you and your landlord solve these energy problems and more. If your building contains five or more units, check out the NYSERDA Multifamily Performance Program. (If your building contains 4 or fewer units, your landlord can take advantage of the Home Performance with ENERGY STAR program to improve energy efficiency.)
More important, direct your landlord to NYSERDA’s Multifamily Performance Program and this website. Let the landlord know that he or she could be saving a lot of money by making the building more energy-efficient, and that a wide range of financial incentives and low-cost financing options are available to help defray the cost of upgrades.
