New Windows? Maybe Not….

Ben Faller & Wesley Walker, HRRC
Monday, May 18th, 7 pm
Shaker Heights Council Chambers, 3400 Lee Rd.

Television ads promoting replacement windows as the best way to lower your energy usage are simply not true. There are many less expensive measures that will have a much greater impact on your monthly heating bill. We’ll talk about when new windows are appropriate and when other measure will do a better job of keeping the cold air out of your house and heated air in.

Yard Drainage Options

J. Meiring Borcherds, Watershed Coordinator, Sustainable Environments Program of the Cuyahoga County Board of Health

Have you been wondering how you can improve drainage in your yard? You’ll learn the common causes of “soggy” yards, the pros and cons of possible remedies, and which projects are easy for a homeowner to do — and which to leave to the professionals.
