Gill Energy Commission to host workshop
GILL — Winter is right around the corner, and likely already blowing in through your windows.
The Gill Energy Commission will hold a “winsert” — winter insulated window insert — workshop Dec. 14 , from 9 a.m. to noon in the Gill Town Hall, 325 Main Road.
The window inserts are handmade wooden frames holding a double layer of clear plastic sheeting, designed to fit snugly inside window jambs.
Participants pay for the materials, estimated to be $1 per square foot.
A properly-constructed “winsert” can reduce heat loss from a typical single- or double-glazed window by up to 50 percent, according to the commission.
Attendees will assemble an insert for one window in their home; measurements required in advance.
Advance registration is required. To register call Janet Masucci at 413-863-8694 or email email@example.com.
