Tuesday, May 13 @ 6 PM
This past winter heating costs have been brutal to homeowners' budgets-especially propane users. Some feel trapped with such fluctuating fuel sources and may not be aware of other options such as geothermal heating and air conditions. The Wilmington Library is hosting information seminar on these systems. Renew Mechanical will explain how these systems work, why they should be considered, dispel the myths and provide buyers tips for those interested. There is no fee for this program, but registration is requested. To register, please stop by the library or call 815-476-2834.
