W.A.R.M upgraded a Montpelier building at 186 River Street that holds both retail and residential rental spaces. The owner had been experiencing high tenant turnover due to the coldness of the building in the winter. Finding that the structure had no insulation, W.A.R.M. installed comprehensive air sealing and insulation. Energy bills are now more than $4,000 lower each year, rooms stay warm, and new tenants have already been in the building nearly twice as long as the typical previous renter. This project was the winner of a Merit Award from Efficiency Vermont in 2016.
