Effective Ways to Save Up to $740 a Year

The walls and ceilings are insulated, and the windows, doors, furnace and appliances are all Energy Star-rated for high efficiency. All wall penetrations to the outside are sealed and insulated, and the doors are weather-stripped to help the Habitat for Humanity families stretch their energy dollars.

“Families all across Pennsylvania are having problems paying their energy bills during these difficult economic times, but there are practical steps each of us can take to conserve energy and save money, too,” said Environmental Protection acting Secretary John Hanger as he toured the Habitat for Humanity construction site on Brady Street.
