On Tuesday, Nov 16 at 7:00 p.m., Metrowest Climate Solutions presents “Creating a More Energy-Efficient Home: Personal Stories” on Zoom.
According to the U.S. Department of Energy, more than half of a home’s energy bill is spent on heating and cooling. A well-insulated home is a surefire way to help keep your power bill manageable in both winter and summer (if you have air conditioning). Once a home is insulated, the benefits of other energy-saving investments, like new heating and cooling systems, grow. And an energy-efficient home is not only better for your pocketbook, it’s better for the environment too!
Three local residents will tell us about their own efforts to drive down fossil fuel consumption and decarbonize their homes and properties. In each case they took a systems approach by making several improvements to their houses such that both their overall CO2 production and energy costs went down.
Speakers include Bill Churchill of Lincoln, Sarah Maas Scheuplein from Weston, and Roger Wiegand from Wayland.
