Housing Stock Problems and Weatherization Opportunities
Vermont and New Hampshire have some of the oldest and least efficient housing stock in the country. As a result, keeping homes warm in the winter and cool in the summer requires a lot of energy, an expensive proposition for many homeowners and an environmentally damaging one for planet Earth.
Fortunately, the efficiency of homes can be improved, in many cases with just a few relatively simple weatherization techniques.
And whether homeowners are willing to take on weatherization projects themselves, hire a professional to do it, or need financial or volunteer assistance, there are numerous ways to go about weatherization.
