December 2010- The first NCV/SEA Weatherization Barnraising in partnership with Waltham’s WATCH was a huge success! Over 30 volunteers from Brandeis University and the Waltham area pitched in to reduce a local resident’s energy bill by $900 per year by cutting 40% of the overall air leakage and replacing 30 regular lightbulbs with CFLs.
Quick tip: Low energy light bulbs use less than 20% of the energy of a conventional light bulb, and can last up to 15 times longer!
