BATON ROUGE, La. – The LSU AgCenter LaHouse Home and Landscape Resource Center will host its Spring Saturday Open House from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. on April 26. Attendees can learn how to lower utility bills and repair costs by keeping homes cool, dry and termite-protected through the spring and summer.

Exhibits will show practical, research-based and cost-effective sun, heat, rain, humidity and termite control systems and strategies. These features not only offer greater comfort and energy efficiency, but also enhanced home durability, sustainability and indoor air quality.

One Saturday each season, LaHouse opens its doors outside its normal hours so the public can explore various proven, cost-effective ways to save energy and improve safety in existing and new homes alike, said Claudette Reichel, LSU AgCenter housing specialist. Attendees can explore LaHouse’s high-performance features, exhibit room and publications with experts on hand to answer questions, she said.

LaHouse is open for self-guided tours from 10 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Monday through Friday.

LaHouse is located at 2858 Gourrier Ave., across from Alex Box Stadium. A donation of $5 per adult is suggested to help support LaHouse educational programming and exhibits.
