Buffalo Energy Attends The NYSERDA Multifamily Partner Conference in Troy, NY!

We just got back from the annual NYSERDA Multifamily Partner Conference! This conference is where all the partners from across the state convene to learn and discuss what works / doesn’t work and lessons learned from other multifamily projects. This conference comes at a critical time – NYSERDA as we know it is changing and shifting their focus to Clean Energy, PACE financing is picking up steam and building codes are changing next year for residential and commercial buildings. (Much more on that later!) This conference was a great way to discuss the future and how we plan to adapt to all of these changes!

You can read more about the upcoming NYSERDA changes here. We plan to do a bigger blog post explaining our take on it all very soon.

The Importance of Fall Furnace Maintenance!

Fall Maintenance on your furnace is super important… and here’s why.

Think of your furnace like your car engine. Every few thousand miles, it needs a new filter, an oil change and a car wash. Doing that protects the car, keeps the engine running smooth and gives YOU peace of mind that everything is ok with your car.

Well, a furnace isn’t much different!! In order for your furnace to run efficiently, safely, prolong its lifespan and give you peace of mind – you should be getting a clean & tune done at least once a year. The clean and tune is inexpensive and really can help save raise the efficiency of your equipment, identify potential health and safety issues and it cleans out the dust and pollen so it doesn’t blow it around in your house. With a clean and tune, you get a new air filter and a freshly cleaned furnace that is now running in tip top shape!

Hey, if we haven’t convinced you, check out what “This Old House” has to say about it!

Of course, we do much more than just clean and tunes. We can install and maintain every type of heating and cooling system. We also install air sealing and insulation and we can consult/design a plan to reduce your energy bills. For a list of all of our HVAC services, click here. Give us a call today to schedule your clean and tune!
