About the Event


If you live in an older Minnesota house, energy  usage might be a top concern for you. Big projects like insulation or  new equipment installation can be expensive and require planning. As a homeowner, how do you decide which project to tackle first? Join experts from the Center for Energy and  Environment for this informational session about planning for  large-scale weatherization projects. Speakers will discuss the  importance of an energy audit and will share how the audit’s report can  help you prioritize your projects and help you budget for upgrades.

You will learn about:

  • The value of an energy audit and how its results can help you plan for home projects
  • Insulation and air-sealing older homes: considerations, costs, timelines, and expected results
  • How best to fit weatherization projects into your home rehab budget
