Save Energy and Space

As energy management systems become increasingly popular, it will be important for multifamily property owners to utilize those systems that give them an increased level of control not only at the appliances themselves, but from leasing offices and corporate offices.

We'll have more on remotely-manageable energy management systems in future posts, but for now, I want to mention the tax credits available to owners that install tankless water heaters in their communities. Last year, the government approved a credit of up to $300 per unit on tankless heaters like those offered by Rinnai to promote the energy savings of these heaters. Besides conserving energy, these water heaters conserve space, too - a typical apartment unit can gain 16 square feet of living space by replacing a conventional water heater with a tankless model!
