BRATTLEBORO Weatherization Where You Live Workshop (In-Person/Virtual): Heating expenses getting out of hand? Keep your home's heat where you need it/don't let it sneak outside. Weatherization is the process which works to save you money by increasing the insulation and air sealing of your residence. As Vermonters, we know some best practices to staying warm, like layering a sweater underneath a jacket that stops the wind. This same idea is used when looking at weatherization opportunities where you live. Whether you rent, are a home owner, or a landlord, there are affordable programs available. 6-8 p.m. in upstairs meeting room next to children's room. Learn about programs and options available to you from our Financial and Energy Coach, Kevin O'Brien, who can help you through the process. Community partners like Efficiency Vermont, Heat Squad, VSECU have programs which work to weatherize as many people as possible. Southeastern Vermont Community Action (SEVCA) has their own weatherization team which can go beyond insulation and air sealing to look into heating systems. Cost savings for an individual have a huge positive environmental impact at the State level because of the reduction of heating-fuels needed to keep weatherized spaces more comfortable for VTers. Free. Brooks Memorial Library, 224 Main St. More info: email@example.com 802-254-5290; Click for more info on Web in new window.
