Park + Vine to Host PWC Weatherization Session – March 5

Posted on March 02, 2011 by

Tony GrayWith the fairy dust of this year’s Oscar Night America starting to settle, we’re already looking forward to our next event – a spring weatherization session at Park + Vine.

This Saturday, March 5 from 10 to 11 a.m. PWC weatherization expert Tony Gray will present a few tips and must-do’s for the house this spring. The session will focus on energy conservation, and Tony will share a few home tips like the ones listed here:

-- Use energy efficient light bulbs like fluorescent, especially the compact fluorescents.

-- Clean your light bulbs (when they are cool), since dirt absorbs light and wastes energy.

-- Keep refrigerator coils clean and unobstructed, clean around the motor only when unplugged.

-- Install low-flow shower heads and sink aerators to reduce water usage.

We will also be informing attendees of the opportunity to volunteer with PWC. With our recent DOE grant, we’re looking for interested volunteers to spend some free time helping us to weatherize homes in the community.

For more information about the session, check out the Park + Vine Facebook event listing. And for more information about volunteering, give us a call at (513) 351-7921. Hope to see you Saturday!
