One speaker, an expert on renovating windows in historic buildings, will explain the process of repairing your windows to help prevent drafts and leaking. He will also describe how outside or inside storm windows can further reduce leakage and how exterior storm windows can be customized to any unusual-shaped window openings, including rounded or pointed.
When: Friday, December 5, 10:00 am to noon
Where: The meeting room at the Northeast Branch Library, 330 7th St., NE
Who can attend: The seminar is open to all without charge, but seating is limited and registration is required. Call the Village at 543-1778 or email firstname.lastname@example.org to register.
Another speaker, a representative of a company that installs solar panels, will talk about their installation and energy-saving benefits. These panels adapt easily to our flat roofs and can result in savings equal to half or more of our electric bills, depending upon how many panels are installed.
A third speaker, a member of an organization that installs green roofs, will tell us how they help to keep homes, porches, carriage houses, or garages cooler in the summer and warmer in the winter. Easy-care green roofs are also a real benefit to the environment, as they keep much storm water out of our sewage system.
We will also have speakers who will discuss energy-saving appliances, some inexpensive products to help you save on utilities, and grants and tax credits that are available for many energy-saving additions to your home.
