Home Share Now is teaming up with the Winooski Natural Resources Conservation District to host a free Button Up Vermont workshop.
The workshop will be held Wednesday, May 23 from 6:00-8:00 pm at the Central Vermont Chamber of Commerce. Button Up Vermont is an informational session designed to help Vermonters learn the basics of building science and how to improve energy efficiency in their homes.
The Central Vermont Chamber of Commerce is located at 33 Stewart Road, in Berlin.
Dave Fowler, operations manager at CVCAC Weatherization, will present the workshop. Dave is also a BPI-certified contractor and he will be able to answer participant’s specific questions about their homes and businesses.
Button Up Vermont was originally developed in 2008 by Central Vermont Community Action Council and is offered this year in partnership with Efficiency Vermont. It includes an overview of why building efficiency is so important here in Vermont, illustrates how homes lose energy, and outlines clear steps that homeowners can take to address this energy loss.
Owners of homes and businesses in central Vermont are invited to attend to learn about actions they can take to lower energy bills and make their homes and businesses more comfortable and affordable.
“We’re offering this workshop because with rising heating costs, everyone needs to be thinking about ways to make their homes more efficient,” said Home Share Now Executive Director Christina Goodwin. “We hope that by sharing this information, we can help home share participants and other central Vermonters be more comfortable in their homes and gain greater control of their heating expenses.”
Home Share Now is co-hosting this workshop after expanding its mission in 2010 to include promoting energy efficiency and environmentally sound decision making among home share participants.
