Weatherization Works Honored for Energy Saving Renovation

Pawlett, VT

Weatherization Works of Pawlett has received a “Best of the Best” award for energy efficient renovation from Efficiency Vermont. The contractors earned top honors for their renovation of an historic inn in Poultney.

Weatherization Works was recognized for their work on the Two Editors Inn, an 1830s Greek Revival building on the Green Mountain College (GMC) campus. The renovation included extensive air sealing, insulation, and a high-efficiency cold-climate heat pump system that cut yearly heating costs by more than $1,800. Weatherization Works undertook the project after students in the GMC thermal-audit class discovered air leaks throughout the building and its heating ducts.

Weatherization Works was one of 13 award recipients recognized on February 3rd at Efficiency Vermont’s annual Better Buildings by Design conference in Burlington. This is the Northeast’s premier design and construction conference, focusing on building efficiency, durability, and value. More than 1,000 leading building design professionals and construction tradespeople attended.

Given annually, the Best of the Best awards recognize high achievement by architects, engineers, builders, and contractors using energy efficiency and sustainability practices to construct or renovate Vermont buildings. Awards are given for commercial and residential new construction, commercial major rehabilitation projects, renovations completed by Building Performance contractors and home improvements completed by Home Performance with ENERGY STAR® contractors.
