HRRC offers encore presentation on window replacement May 18

One hears ads for new windows all the time. Window suppliers tempt homeowners with promises of dramatically reduced heating costs or “new, low prices” on their products.

How do you determine whether replacing all of your windows is a good investment? While it may make sense to replace an individual window unit, there are usually more effective strategies you can take to reduce energy usage—and many of them are far less expensive.

Home Repair Resource Center (HRRC), the Cleveland Heights nonprofit, has scheduled a repeat presentation of “New Windows? Maybe Not. . . .” to help homeowners better understand their choices.

On Monday, May 18, 7–8:30 p.m., Ben Faller and Wesley Walker of HRRC will discuss when new windows are appropriate and when other measures will do a better job of keeping cold air out and heated air in. The talk will take place at Shaker Heights City Hall, Council Chambers, at 3400 Lee Road.

This presentation, part of HRRC's HouseMender University series, is free and open to residents of all communities. Reservations are requested; call 216-381-6100, ext. 16 or e-mail
