You don’t have to hire a professional to make your home more energy efficient. You can save hundreds of dollars a year through several useful and easy steps that even the most rank home improvement amaturer can undertake. Learn how at “Crossing the Threshold to a More Energy Efficient Home,” the next in a series of Saving Green Together workshops, Monday, April 4th, 6:30 p.m-8:30 p.m.., at the United Church of Rogers Park, 1545 W. Morse (at Ashland), 2nd Floor.
Hear from top experts in the field. Seasoned building professionals, Jim Laukes and Theo Harduvel of theEnvironmental Exchange, will offer techniques, tips and hands-on experiences with weatherizing your home. Discover what you can do to start saving energy and money with simple, affordable materials like weather stripping and caulk. See how it’s done, and then try your own hand at practical, low-cost weatherization.
In addition vendors from several weatherization companies will be available to provide you with a variety of weatherization tools and services to make the weatherization of your home or apartment a breeze!
