Energy Audit- continued from front page “It would be wise to do the heating system in the Bartley House
or the Armstrong Building before they die,” Herbert stated, “instead of going into reactive mode.” The heating system in the Armstrong Building is about 30 years old, while the one in the Armstrong Building is 21 years old. However, Herbert also said he doesn’t seeing these systems failing in the next couple of years. “Nothing drastic has to be done today,” Arbogast agreed, but plans for replacements do need to be formulated. “The focus of any improvements should definitely be on heating,” he added.
“What can we do, as fast as we can, and give the best benefit?” Selectman Kathleen DiFruscia questioned “We need a priority list.” Herbert said committee members would draw up a list of proposed improvements from the least to the most expensive, including the amount of time it would take to receive payback on the money expended. Most of the weatherization tasks would pay for themselves in one to five years, Herbert said. “Weatherization is a relatively small cost,” Arbogast noted.
Selectmen will discuss the issue further when they receive the priority list from members of the Local Energy Committee.
