HARDWICK – A workshop, sponsored by the Jeudevine Library, on home weatherization and energy audits will be held on Wednesday, July 21, at 7 p.m., at the Memorial Building, Hardwick’s town office building.
The Heat Squad has been working in Vermont since 2009 and recently expanded into the Northeast Kingdom. Homeowners who want to upgrade their homes to be safer and more comfortable may receive help from the HEAT Squad to help and make home improvements manageable by offering trustworthy advice, support, access to incentives, and financing for health, safety, and efficiency upgrades.
Attendees will have an opportunity to meet Sally Ayers, Northeast Kingdom auditor and energy advisor. She will have her HEAT Squad car full of cool tools, including the blower door kit and infrared camera that she uses during a home audit visits to help save on energy bills. Sample audit reports will be available, as will information about rebates, incentives, financing a project, and the stove swap program.
The Heat Squad works with the Vermont Low Income Trust for Electricity (VLITE) which funds projects that advance the state’s energy goals, with a particular focus on the energy needs of low-income Vermonters.
