On Saturday, April 16, between 1-4 PM, visit all three OPEN HOUSES:
1) OPEN HOUSE: Wayland architect and retrofit specialist Doug Sacra will show the solar photovoltaic canopy system in his garden on 55 Glezen Lane, as well as the new attic insulating in his 1904 attic, plus the new system of ducted air to air heat pumps that serve each room so they all have individual control and are very efficient. If you have an older house and are looking to retrofit, this is the open house for you! Also featured is sustainable landscaping, replacing the worst areas where grass never grew well (boy, do we know those!).
~ and, at the same time and within walking/biking distance ~
3) OPEN HOUSE: Have a look at the MESys Fully-automated Wood Pellet Central Heating System at 11 Simpson Rd. This Maine Energy Systems (MESys) modern wood pellet boiler heats the whole home using existing plumbing and thermostats, reducing the carbon footprint by 86% as compared to traditional oil-burning equipment. In addition to homeowners benefiting from extremely stable fuel prices, MESys boilers and furnaces are eligible for rebates up to 65% from the Massachusetts Clean Energy Center. The homeowner, a MESys representative, and the installer, John Lataille of JPL Construction, will be on site to help answer questions.
