Free Home Energy Makeover for Ossining Veteran
Ossining, NY. WWII veteran Victor Paolantonio will receive a home energy
makeover next week when BPCA Downstate Chapter energy efficiency contractors
join together to retrofit his 61 year old home. The retrofit will save
approximately 50% of his heating costs. All of this work will be done at no
cost to Mr. Paolantonio.
The home will be insulated and air-sealed,
with a high-efficiency heat pump and ductless system installed and the home
will be properly ventilated to ensure indoor air quality. Andrew Fischer of
Bright Home Energy Solutions - one of the contractors who is donating time
to this project - says “what we are doing is part of a full scale Home
Performance with Energy Star assessment and upgrade. We expect to save the
Paolantonio’s around 30% on overall energy bills, and closer to 50% on his
oil. And make the house a whole lot more comfortable.”
Performance Contractors Association of NYS (BPCA/NYS) is the driving force
behind this effort. Spokesperson Vincent Hannigan of Bruni & Campisi says
“The contractors of the BPCA are proud to honor all of our veterans on this
Memorial Day. We’re all glad to put our hammers to good use! Really we are
glad we can use our skills and resources to do something so meaningful. All
of our veterans’ deserve our gratitude and respect for the sacrifices they
made. Our BPCA members are honored to help local veterans permanently
save money on their energy bills.”
