Abstract or Summary
  • Recent trends in energy have lead to an increased push for the efficient use of energy with a focus on improving the energy efficiency of household appliances. Electric resistance heating represents a highly inefficient technology that still sees regular use. Previous literature has paid relatively little attention to the heating systems of multi- family homes. This paper uses statistical analysis to examine the relationship between multi-family homes and the likelihood of a home using electric resistance heating. By applying a heuristic decision making approach that challenges traditional rational choice theory, this paper finds evidence that split incentives between landlord and tenants has resulted in an inefficient outcome. This research will has implications for how the use of energy-efficient and resource-efficient heating systems can be encouraged with regards to multi-family homes.
