Home Energy Efficiency Education for Vermonters
Button Up Vermont is an educational workshop designed to help Vermont homeowners understand the steps they can take to make their homes more energy efficient and comfortable.
It's a 90-minute session, taught by a local professional certified by the Building Performance Institute (BPI). It's designed for Vermont homeowners, with information in layman's language, and has plenty of information to help you take the right actions in your home - starting with an energy assessment.
It starts with an overview of the ways Vermont homes use energy, and the opportunities for each of us to save on heating and cooling energy. In the presentation, the presenter will explain the way your house works as a system to move air through the building, and explain how proper air-sealing and insulation can work to reduce your home's energy needs.
There's a Q&A section, and attendees will be able to get their questions answered and figure out the resources they need to get started on saving energy and saving money.
