Join Matt Brown, of Life Cycle Solutions
for an Energy Audit Tour in the neighborhood. Get the inside scoop on why energy audits are important, useful, and can reduce your bills. The energy audit tour will take you around the common areas of a typical co-op and a sampling of apartments in the building. You will learn how to examine the boiler room, hallways/stairways, entrances/exits, and the rooftop for energy efficiency – Matt will explain the major building systems that either directly use energy, or indirectly cause the use of energy, such as heating systems, domestic hot water, building envelope, lighting, water fixtures, and appliances. We’ll be looking at the existing equipment, see how the different systems work together, and try to find ways to improve the building’s energy efficiency.
– tours are at 11am and 12.30pm, and cost $15 per person.
Matt will provide a copy of his energy audit report to participants before hand so they can see what to expect when they go through the process.
