Recommendations: for future multi-family retrofits
- Stepwise measures require detailed record-keeping to accurately assess savings.
We recommend keeping detailed records and using granular measurement and verification best practices when applicable. See TAF’s guide to measurement and verification.
- Right sizing is worth the investment to ensure performance.
We recommend using engineering heat loss calculations to identify the right-sized heat pump system, especially in multi-family buildings.
- Ensure building owners and operators are willing to enable cooling access without a cost to residents.
This is a way to increase resident comfort and satisfaction and reduce peak demand.
