Installing HVAC System in New York Properties

Installing HVAC System for a Greener Urban New York


The current focus on environmental protection underscores the importance of addressing heating systems, particularly in urban areas like New York. Enhancing our quality of life through installing HVAC system can lead to significant reductions in greenhouse gas emissions.

In major U.S. cities, property owners are required to report annual expenses on heating and cooling. Owners cover HVAC installation costs but may overlook long-term benefits, resulting in a reluctance to upgrade. Increasing awareness among key decision-makers about environmental improvements achievable through HVAC system installations is crucial. Initiatives like the city’s Retrofit Accelerator program aim to engage property owners and decision-makers to reduce building emissions in NYC.

NYC Mayor’s Office: Modest HVAC upgrades in steam-heated buildings could cut emissions by almost 5%. Though seemingly modest, this reduction is akin to removing 360,000 cars from the streets.

The Retrofit Accelerator, established in 2015, serves as a free educational resource for NYC property owners and building managers interested in energy upgrades and HVAC system installations. While some managers resort to increasing heat to address complaints, this not only proves ineffective but also wastes energy. The lack of comprehensive knowledge among decision-makers often leads to overlooking potential solutions, despite the long-term benefits of installing HVAC system.

Fortunately, alternatives exist. The city offers options such as annual tuning for boilers and burners to minimize heat loss. Upgrading to modern heat controls that adjust to both outdoor and indoor temperatures, clearing ductworks for even steam flow, and installing in-unit radiator valves for residents’ control are more efficient strategies than traditional methods.
