LONDONDERRY, Vt. – Harald Schmidtke, Weatherization Director from The Southeastern Community Action agency (SEVCA) will be at Neighborhood Connections on Thursday, October 13th from 2-4 p.m. to discuss the national Weatherization Assistance Program (WAP). Local non-profit agencies such as SEVCA deliver no-cost weatherization services to eligible residents. The goals of the program are energy conservation and healthier living conditions for low-income residents who either own or rent their homes.
SEVCA Weatherization provides such services as state of the art energy audits, insulation and air sealing, heating system improvements and other energy-saving measures, all at no cost to residents who meet the income guidelines. According to the agency’s web-site, a certified energy auditor visits the home to complete a thorough analysis of its energy efficiency and prescribe appropriate cost-effective measures. Then a team of their highly-trained technicians is scheduled to make the needed improvements. Once all the work is complete, a Quality Control Inspector ensures that everything was done properly and is of the highest quality. These improvements result in increased energy efficiency and decreased fuel costs, enhanced indoor air quality, improved health and safety and a higher comfort level.
Higher-income households can receive the same services at a reasonable rate through their BEST fee- for- service program.
Please call 824-4343 to register for this presentation that is offered at no cost or e-mail MC Schwartz at firstname.lastname@example.org. Neighborhood Connections is located in Londonderry’s Mountain Marketplace, next to the Londonderry Post Office.
