NEW ALBANY

Pizza and Preservation energy-efficient workshop May 14

 

Replacement windows? Blown-in insulation? Lots and lots of caulk?

 For those wrestling with how to make their historic home more energy-efficient, an upcoming workshop in New Albany will offer solutions. The presentation, entitled “Energy Conservation and Your Historic Home: It’s Not the 1970s Anymore,” will be given by Ron Zmyslo, a historic preservation consultant with Preserve Restore Maintain Indiana with many years’ experience in construction and preservation. The workshop will take place from 6 to 8:30 p.m. on Tuesday, May 14, at the PC Home Center, 123 Cherry St., New Albany. 

Designed for current or prospective owners of historic property, this workshop will cover what we have learned since the 1970s and what we got wrong; how to really understand how your historic home uses energy [hint - it’s not the windows]; what the best energy conservation measures are, and what your payback will be.

Sponsored by the New Albany Historic Preservation Commission, PC Home Center, and Neighborhoods Now, LLC, this workshop is free and open to the public, but reservations are required by May 10. To make a reservation, contact Indiana Landmarks at 812-284-4534 or south@indianalandmarks.org.

The National Trust for Historic Preservation created Preservation Week in 1971 to spotlight grassroots preservation efforts throughout the country. The celebration, observed by small towns and big cities across the nation, has grown into Preservation Month annually in May. The theme for Preservation Month 2013 is ‘See! Save! Celebrate!’ Indiana Landmarks and its partner organizations are offering a range of events in Southern Indiana during May, including tours, workshops and awards.
