UMaine research included in Press Herald article on window inserts

University of Maine research was mentioned in the Portland Press Herald article, “Get busy dressing your windows for winter.” With winter quickly approaching, it’s the time of year to insulate your house against drafts — and a Maine nonprofit group has developed a low-cost window insert to solve the problem, according to the article. UMaine research showed that the 6,214 window inserts built by Rockland-based nonprofit Window Dressers in 2017 saved Mainers 880,000 gallons of heating fuel last winter, the Press Herald reported. The article provided information on how to sign up to volunteer with Window Dressers, or to have inserts built for your home.
