Join us to learn the five things you need to know about your home to save money and be cozy this winter. We’ll address trouble spots like fireplaces and windows and have a demonstration on how to build a professional style attic hatch cover.
The five steps we’ll cover to understand your home this winter:
1. Everyone knows that heat rises. Learn the rest of the story.
2. Cold air outside, warm moist air inside. Manage humidity and avoid condensation problems.
3. Fireplaces. Reduce their negative impact while still enjoying the occasional fire.
4. Windows. Practical ways to keep the cold out and the heat in.
5. Maintaining indoor air quality during the winter months.
Bonus: Demo on how to build a professional style attic hatch cover.
Speakers include Laura Fiori of Key Green Energy Solutions, recently awarded “Best Home Energy Auditor” by LEAP.
