Fall Energy Update From T.J.

The summer is over and we are right back at energy retrofitting multi-family buildings. We are installing 13-watt light bulbs that are equivalent to 60-watt bulbs. We are also installing 20-watt bulbs that are the equivalent to a 75-watt bulb. Changing sink aerators for the bathrooms and kitchens. We check toilets to make sure they are not leaking and it is not using a lot of gallons of water every flush and if they do they get a toilet that uses 1.0 gallons per flush. We check their refrigerator is running perfectly – cooling and freezing food – if not, they might qualify for a new one. So far we have done this energy conservation work at Eaton Terrace and many more.
