Building heat loss is a significant issue, especially in multi-family or commercial buildings. The heat loss around leaky AC units in an apartment complex, for example, adds up quickly. If you own or manage a multi-family unit, you are probably looking for a simple and effective solution you can implement year after year.
Tenants are often not willing to remove window AC units each season and store them. Instead the units remain in place and allow cold air from outside to infiltrate your building, creating drafts and cold pockets in an otherwise comfortable room. Heat loss around these units is significant – up to 3.2 million BTUs per season. Just consider the amount of energy you’re wasting to compensate for this loss. The cost is significant.
Rather than allow this waste to continue for another season, take a careful look at products from Green Sentry Solutions. Window Sentry, for example, is designed to provide a complete air seal around a window unit without removing it. Window Sentry fits tightly around the entire unit, keeping cold air out and warmer air inside the room where it’s most needed.
Sleeve Sentry is available in several styles and is designed to seal wall mounted AC units. Sleeve Sentry fits into the wall sleeve and provides a complete air seal, protecting even during high wind events. Both Sleeve Sentry and Window Sentry are easy to store when not in use and install quickly for protection year after year.
