Workshop: Winterizing Workshop, Making a More Efficient Home, November 6, 2009

Winterizing Workshop: Making a more efficient home

Friday, 6 November 2009 – 7:00pm to 9:00pm.

With November fast approaching, homeowners and renters alike begin to anticipate the frozen pipes and leaky windows of winter, as well as the financial strain of keeping the winter’s cold at bay.
As part of our continuing Urban Sustainability Series, the JP Forum joins with the Massachusetts Municipal Association to present a 1-hour workshop on home energy saving strategies for the winter.  Focusing on the simple steps to reducing the use of electricity, water and heat, this program offers a do-it-yourself approach to saving energy.  Topics will include:
  • Air sealing and insulation strategies to greatly reduce home energy costs
  • Available rebates and grants to reduce the cost of home alterations and appliances
  • Home energy audits from MassSave
  • Inexpensive solutions for reducing your house’s carbon footprint inlcuding programmable thermostats, CFLs, and low-flow showerheads.
Come and share your strategies for reducing electricity, water and heat use during the winter months, and methods for greening our habits in the places we call home.
