September 18, 2009 - TRC - By Renae Muscatell
Penquis has received a grant from the JTG Foundation to offer qualifying homeowners an economical way to weatherize their homes. “Often when people think of weatherizing their homes they think of insulating and/or installing new widows and doors which can be quite costly,” said Mike Bush, Housing Developer for Penquis. “This program is designed to address air leaks as an economical way to save on heating and cooling costs.” According to Bush, air leaks can account for 5-40% of heating and cooling costs.
