TELL US ABOUT YOUR STEAM HEAT

Urban Green and NYSERDA are collaborating on research to identify and solve the problems that steam may pose for occupants—like causing New Yorkers to lose sleep (and productivity).

If you lived (or have ever lived) in a steam heat building, we invite you to participate in a short, 1-2 minute survey to share your experience.

Not sure if your building has steam heat? Click here to find out!
