Hello Neighbors!

Listen to what a neighbor had to say about a workshop in Watts-Hospital Hillandale recently:

I wanted to share some of the home energy-saving tips I learned at the DIY Energy-Saving workshop at Liz Sappenfield’s home.  We talked about how energy is lost in the home with simple, easy-to-understand explanations, and then made actual repairs around Liz’s home.  It was a great way to learn how to limit waste!

Proper insulation in the attic is one of the biggest ways to save energy in the home, but we also learned that one large source of energy waste comes from air leaking in and out of the house through cracks in the wall and around windows, doors, and access to the attic.  We also learned that one very easy in-home fix is purchasing a programmable thermostat, which will control the temperature of your home automatically to save energy.

Thanks to the volunteers, to Liz for being a generous host, and to everyone that came to provide their own energy-saving tips.
