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).
This survey will help us prioritize these issues and find out how much it might be worth to fix them. Your answers to the following four simple questions will inform the larger scope of our research, which will cover the more concrete cost, carbon and fuel savings potential of improving steam heat. We’d appreciate approximately 1-2 minutes of your time to answer these important questions!
