Fairfield, CT -- Mr. Handyman, Fairfield County's leading home repair and maintenance service, won a three-year contract to weatherize 770 households served by ABCD, Inc. Weatherization, a Bridgeport-based social service agency.
ABCD, Inc. selected 39 material vendors and contractors to help fulfill its mandate under the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009 (ARRA) Weatherization Assistance Program, the economic stimulus program. ARRA funding targets two objectives: create jobs and lower energy costs for low- and moderate-income families by improving the energy efficiency of their homes.
Mr. Handyman provides energy efficiency services such as caulking and weather stripping; installing windows, skylights and doors; insulating attics, walls, and appliances; installing programmable thermostats, etc. These measures can reduce homeowners’ energy costs by over 20%. The savings could increase even more when combined with tax credits of up to $1,500 for weatherization investments.
