Do you know how much heat you’re losing through your windows and doors? Do you want to learn how you can conserve energy and save money on your heating bills?
Tonight, Medfield Green and the Medfield Energy Committee are sponsoring a workshop with Sagewell, the company that has taken thermal images of nearly all houses in Medfield.
Residents can now go on-line and look at a photo of their house and see, through a color-coded image, where exactly the house is losing heat.
The purpose of the workshop – which is tonight, Jan. 17 from 7 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. at the Medfield Public Library -- is to help residents interpret their thermal image and to find out how to make their homes more energy- and cost-efficient.
Residents are invited to bring a copy of their image to the meeting.
Also at tonight’s meeting will be Mike Cucchiara with Next Step Living, a Home Performance Contractor in the Mass Save® Home Energy Service Program.
Cucchiara will explain the necessary steps to implement the weatherization opportunities found in each home to make it more energy efficient, to lower utility bills and to help residents make their homes more comfortable all year round.
“There will be an opportunity to speak to an expert about thermal imaging and learn about incentives in Medfield,” said Tim D’Souza of Sagewell, noting there are different programs available in different towns depending on many factors including the utility companies that service the area.
Residents are encouraged to attend to be matched with the program that best suits their needs.
