Energy Savers Success Story: 5649 S. Indiana, Chicago
The Energy Savers program works with a variety of multifamily buildings, from large high-rises to smaller walk-ups such as this one. Landlord Jeff Cunningham owns several properties, and has used Energy Savers to upgrade five of them.
Jeff replaced the buildings’ boilers, installed new boiler controls, added pipe insulation, and completed roof cavity air sealing and insulation. These measures are often the top three most cost-effective recommendations the Energy Savers team makes for a typical older, Chicago six-flat such as this one.
Jeff received a low-interest Energy Savers loan from Community Investment Corporation (CIC) to cover the two insulation measures, as well as a grant from Elevate Energy for part of the boiler replacement, and financing from CIC for acquisition and additional rehab of the property.
Jeff is now seeing 34.6 percent savings on his natural gas bills in the first year.
