Steam traps and thermostatic radiator valves are a quick fix with big payback

With the heating season approaching, now is the time to service aging boiler systems at multifamily properties.

Energy Trust offers a $100 incentive per failed open steam trap or thermostatic radiator valve (TRV) installed at qualifying multifamily properties. Steam traps can either be repaired or replaced to qualify for the incentive. TRVs must replace manual on/off valves at radiators for central hydronic or steam systems fueled by a participating gas utility.

Complete details can be found in the Multifamily section of Energy Trust’s website. Use Form 320P to apply.
