TELL US ABOUT YOUR STEAM HEAT

Steam is one of the most energy-intensive types of heating systems in residential buildings, but what are the issues with steam beyond energy use?

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 builidng has steam heat? Click here to find out!
