Local Law 84/87 and How EnTech Can Help You

blog

In 2020, the New York City government passed Local Law 18 which is also known as the Heat Sensors Program (HSP). Let’s explore what this is all about.

What is the New York City Heat Sensors Program?

The Heat Sensors Program requires HPD to identify buildings in NYC with recurring heat complaints and violations. They will then keep a close watch on those buildings’ indoor temperatures via heat sensors, and issue violations if the temperatures are below the legal requirements.

Who is this program for?

Every two years, on July 1st, the Department of Housing Preservation and Development (HPD) selects 50 class A multiple dwellings to participate in this program. A Class A multiple dwelling is a residential building in which tenants live long term.

The buildings are chosen based on the number of heat complaints and violations issued over the previous two years.

If your building has been selected as part of the program, you’ll receive a notice from HPD. You can also check NYC’s website, to find out if your building has been chosen.

All about heat sensors

Heat sensors with internet capabilities must be installed in each dwelling unit to measure the indoor temperatures and record all data for future reference. This information must be accessible to the property owners and tenants of the units in which the heat sensors are installed.

English. Many desktop publishing packages and web page editors now use Lorem Ipsum as their default model text, and a search for ‘lorem ipsum’ will uncover many web sites still in their infancy. Various versions have evolved over the years, sometimes by accident, sometimes on purpose (injected humour and the like).

Entech’s indoor temperature sensors comply with the guidelines put in place by the HPD Heat Sensors Program. See below for more information on Entech’s heat sensors.
