Why New Yorker’s Windows were Closed this Winter

March 14th, 2016 in News by

For most New York City residents, winter means radiators are cranking and windows are wide open in attempt to regulate temperatures inside many buildings. The majority of New York City buildings still sport old cast iron radiators which operate with steam heat. Overheated radiators can potentially cost landlords, building owners and residence alike, a pretty penny every year, when there is no ability to control temperatures at each radiator.

Behold, there is an answer to this common problem! A recent article published in the New York Times sheds light on ways that New York City is trying to cut costs and save energy when it comes to heating up its buildings during the winter months (click here for the article).

Tunstall Corporation and Macon Controls carry, in stock, both the Thermostatic Radiator Valves (TRVs) and thermostats featured in this article. Together these two additions to existing steam heat systems allow users to be able to regulate temperatures for each individual radiator, making it possible for New Yorker’s to keep their windows closed during winter months!
