Arkansas IPL held a Work Day on Saturday, March 10, 2012 at Mt. Comfort Presbyterian Church near Fayetteville. A crew of five Ark. Interfaith Power and Light volunteers and two professionals spent seven hours at the church. Volunteers re-connected, sealed and insulated ducts. They foam-sealed the foundation perimeter and spread a reinforced vapor barrier on the ground under the church building.
Over the years, it will all be worth it in energy savings, indoor comfort, indoor air quality and structural resilience. Also, with a recommended improvement in the access hole to the crawlspace, it should control most smaller animals that make a mess underneath the building, eat the insulation off electrical wires, reproduce, die and then sometimes smell bad.
Appreciation goes to Merl and Lance of George’s Heating and Air Conditioning and to Jesse Steward of BNS Electrical for their assistance.
Thanks to all for a job well done!
