NORTH SALEM, N.Y. - North Salem residents are invited to attend a demonstration of an energy assessment on Saturday, February 4 from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. Local resident Larry Nissman will conduct the procedure. Nissman, a member of the North Salem Energy Advisory Panel, has a masters degree in Environmental Science and has conducted over 250 comprehensive home assessments for Phoenix Mechanical .
The demonstration will take place at Lobdell House , an historic building at 270 Titicus Road which houses government offices. The house was chosen because it is similar to a single family home and the energy assessment procedures will resemble those used in a typical residence.
Nissman will use a variety of diagnostic tools, such as an infrared camera, a blower door, a combustion analyzer and a manometer. The purpose is to identify the various sources of energy loss within the building. Based upon the information disclosed by the analysis, a report will be generated estimating the amount of money and energy that could be saved by making recommended improvements.
This demonstration will give people a chance to see the process and ask questions. They will see what needs to be done and what it would cost, the annual savings in fuel and the consequent net savings. Were all looking forward to seeing how we can save money and become more efficient, said Council member Amy Rosmarin .
