Located on one of Madison & Fifths greatest townhouse streets, 28 East 95th Street encompasses over 9,000 square feet of interior space and over 1,000 square feet of private outdoor space on almost every floor. This single-family home was recently rebuilt utilizing updated systems to the highest standards. Specifically, the mechanical system design is equipped with features which are now mandatory in times of extreme health risk such mandating buildings have outdoor air ventilation systems that can reduce the spread of pathogens within the built environment. Other than having seven private outdoor spaces, this house has a unique mechanical system referred to as an “Energy Recovery Ventilator” (ERV), which can continuously provide refreshing and filtered air within the house while also adding humidity during the winter without any loss of energy. The American Society of Heating, Refrigerating and Air-Conditioning Engineer’s (ASHRAE) data confirms an effective HVAC system best reduces the likelihood of infection by bacteria/viruses.
