Three-Story Brownstone in Brooklyn, New York

Completed by Kew Forest Plumbing & Heating, Inc., this successful residential oil-gas upgrade was part of the National Grid New York City Residential High-Efficiency Natural Gas Heating Program. The residential heating experts at Kew Forest Plumbing planned and installed a high-efficiency replacement system that resulted in significant CO2 reduction, annual cost savings, and National Grid incentives.

This landmark brownstone is a two-family, three-story house in the heart of downtown Brooklyn. To save money on energy costs by using less natural gas, the homeowner opted to install a high-efficiency natural gas heating boiler, indirect water heater, and two programmable thermostats. Mail-in rebates from National Grid helped the Casale family afford these valuable upgrades.

After the installation of the energy-efficient equipment, the family realized an average monthly gas bill of just $123. They are now saving $400 a year!

Quality workmanship and attention to detail.

The Brooklyn brownstone homeowner Dawn Casale was very pleased with the workmanship and energy savings. The National Grid Energy-Efficiency rebate program provided her with a $1,350 rebate.

“We recently purchased and renovated our new home to be environmentally friendly as well as effective. My contractor recommended we install a new high-efficiency heating system, which would provide us with ample heat and hot water. This new system works great! It gives us the environmental benefits we wanted as well as great financial savings. My contractor also told us about the National Grid Energy-Efficiency rebate program. The rebate program was easy to participate in and well worth the effort.”
