Weatherize Kearsarge Presentation Offered

February 8 in Grantham by Kearsarge Climate Action

Press Release
Weatherization of Andover’s Town Offices Building in 2017

An opportunity to learn the benefits and costs of home weatherization will be offered by Kearsarge Climate Action in the Grantham Town Building at 2 PM on Saturday, February 8, as part of an initiative to help residents throughout the Mount Kearsarge-Lake Sunapee region save money and stay warmer during New Hampshire winters. The Town Building is located at 300 State Route 10 South in Grantham.

Part of a multi-town effort known as Weatherize Kearsarge, the presentation is free and open to the public. Kearsarge Climate Action is a consortium of several local energy committees, including the Andover Energy Group. Content of the presentation, and of the wider Weatherize Kearsarge campaign, is being provided by the Upper Valley-based non-profit Vital Communities.

Weatherization involves making physical home improvements — such as insulation and air-sealing — to reduce energy costs, improve comfort, and resolve issues such as ice dams, moisture, mold, cold spots, and drafts.  Most recommended improvements will be in basements and attics.

NHSaves, a consortium of New Hampshire electrical utilities, is offering rebates that may cover up to 50% of recommended weatherization improvements, up to $4,000 (eligibility based on fuel use per square foot). Learn more at and  Or send an email with your questions to
