The owner of Villa Anginette Apartments reached out to the Rhode Island Energy Multifamily Program for a no-cost energy assessment of the 13-unit building. The energy audit found that the boiler room contained an older gas-fired atmospheric boiler that was still in use for heating. The system pumps were original to the building, and there was a considerable amount of uninsulated pipe running through unconditioned spaces.
The assessment also found opportunities to improve the performance of the building envelope, especially in the attic and basement.
The owner elected to fully capitalize on the Multifamily Program offerings by implementing all of the assessment’s recommendations.
“This was a big investment for me. Working with the Program was a great decision. My rep was knowledgeable, personable, and really listened to my personal situation. He broke everything down for me and explained how I was wasting money each year. We are already seeing significant savings.”
