Replacement.WindowsIs your house too cold in the winter and too hot in the summer? Do you often feel air leaking in around your windows or under your doors? Are you interested in planting drought-tolerant blossoms this spring like California Poppies to conserve water? Are you curious about the steps you can take to simultaneously create a more energy efficient home, save planet Earth and save money?

If you answered “yes” to any of those questions, then Alhambra Preservation Group’s upcoming evening seminar entitled Energy Efficiency and Historic Homes is for you!

Join us at 7:00 p.m. on Wednesday, March 18, 2015 in Reese Hall at the Alhambra Civic Center Library, located at 101 South First Street, Alhambra, for presentations by a panel of energy experts including Lisa Novick of the Theodore Payne Foundation, Scott Campbell of Window Restoration and Repair and Dan Thomsen of Building Doctors. Issues such as financial incentives, preservation challenges facing historic homes, and real-world examples will be addressed, followed by a question and answer session for each speaker. Light refreshments will also be served at this event.

“From Arts and Crafts to Spanish Colonial Revival, Alhambra’s historic architectural styles and their characteristics embodied energy efficiency when they were designed a century ago,” states Christine Olson, President of Alhambra Preservation Group. “This seminar will help residents unlock the energy efficient design-elements built into their historic homes and discover new tips for making their home energy-ready for the next 100 years.”
