Operation and Maintenance Program Strategies

Grantees can also implement operation and maintenance program strategies to support energy efficiency in their rehabilitation projects. General strategies include:

  • Regularly tune-up the furnace;
  • Regularly replace furnace filters;
  • Clean cooling coils periodically;
  • Repair weatherstripping as needed; and
  • Reduce hours of operation of lights (e.g., install timers, dimmers or photocells).
