One of the largest measures of energy loss affecting multi-family housing today is the loss derived from the gaps around air conditioners.

Experts say that the gap around each AC unit can be compared to a hole the size of your fist in your building.

Solutions for this problem must be repeatable and simple to implement and effective.

Green Sentry Solutions products completely air seals the AC and has been tested with a blower door test up to 150mph winds.

Our solutions completely block the flow of air and prevent heat loss from escaping through the cold seasons.

ROI can be less than two season, regardless of how you heat.

Our solutions eliminate tenant complaints about drafty AC's providing more uniform temperature throughout the building.

Affordable Energy Efficiency in Multi-Family Housing

Demand for multi-family housing is increasing.  The number of people looking for rental apartments continues to grow due to uncertainty in home values.  Economic uncertainty in general creates limited finances and the need to keep options open in the event of a relocation or job change.

Compared to a single family home, multi-family housing uses more energy per square foot of living space.  More people in the building use energy intensive resources such as hot water.  Building temperatures are difficult to maintain due to hot and cold spots. Variance in the preferences of individual tenants and the limitations of large HVAC systems further complicate things for building owners.

As a building manager or owner, it is important to make your multi-family building as energy efficient as possible.  The good news is that careful use of energy efficiency retrofits can decrease the energy consumption and related expenses by up to 75% in many multi-family buildings.  These measures save you money and make your tenants more comfortable at the same time.

One cost effective way to dramatically impact your building’s energy efficiency is the installation of products from Green Sentry Solutions.  Heat loss around window and wall AC units is significant and completely preventable.  Our Window Sentry and Sleeve Sentry products completely seal the area around the AC unit and eliminate costly heat loss.  Our products provide protection for several years and can be used season after season.
