MISUSE OF RESOURCES TO HELP VERMONTERS HEAT THEIR HOMES

  • Weatherization can reduce home annual heating costs on average 25% for an average cost of $7,500.  At the same time supplying jobs for local contractors and affecting all areas of the state.  This approach would do more for Vermont’s future energy needs more than the proposed pipeline.
  • Weatherization investments have a long term impact by reducing a homeowner’s vulnerability when it comes to the price of energy in the future. 
  • Cold Climate Heat Pumps are a much better choice for heating homes.  They are very efficient, even at every cold temperature and significantly reduce the amount of GHG emissions associated with heating our homes!
