Keeping the Bronx Affordable and Warm


As part of our work to preserve affordable housing, UNHP, with Dougert Management Company, has installed new boilers in three multifamily buildings that had undergone gut rehabilitation over 20 years ago. Each of the new high-efficiency Lochinvar condensing boiler systems feature an on-line heat computer monitoring system provided by EnTech Digital Controls. Heat temperatures are monitored off-site in 20% of the apartments and public areas and can be adjusted remotely to insure adequate heat and energy conservation. The renovation was funded by the operating funds of the buildings highlighting effective management and the benefits of non-profit ownership towards preserving long-term affordability.
