Ahhh summertime! It’s a challenge thinking about keeping buildings cozy warm in mid July… But the cold weather will be here before too long, and the Efficiency Training Program continues with programs. Here’s a current snapshot:
How to Diagnose Basements for Air Sealing & Insulating Workshop
Thursday, July 26th
This is the second day of a 2-day course on how to properly diagnose a basement for air sealing and insulating. We will be working at Peppercorns Natural Foods Store in Plymouth where, as a group, we will diagnose issues and solutions throughout the basement. Also, we will be getting our hands dirty helping to air seal and insulate certain identified issues ranging from moisture to air leakage and lack of insulation.
