    Heating a home during a cold Vermont winter is expensive. To help ease the pain, many are turning to weatherization projects. The Central Vermont Community Action Council has five crews working year-round to button up homes in our area. These services are free of charge to central Vermonters who meet income qualifications. Others can hire these trained crews for audits and renovations. People who go through the process typically save 30 to 35 percent on their heating fuel usage. On Friday, a CVCAC crew was at the home of Linda Morse in Williamstown. Above, Lt. Gov. Phil Scott, right, and Craig Fullerton, of East Randolph, blow loose cellulose insulation into the attic of Morse’s home. Scott was on the job as part of his “Vermont Everyday Jobs Tour.” Left, Zach Green, of Northfield, caulks around a new 3-inch insulated basement door. Below, Brian Mudgett, of Cabot, installs weather stripping around a door frame.
