“These solutions can translate to more money for summer fun, when you don’t have to pay for high utility bills or home damage repair costs,” said Claudette Hanks Reichel, LaHouse Director and Extension Housing Specialist.

Highlighted displays, cut-aways, signage and free publications show research-based and cost-effective sun, heat, rain, humidity and termite control systems. Reichel said these high-performance home features offer greater comfort and energy-efficiency, along with better quality, durability and some of the key requirements for a healthy home.

One Saturday each season, LaHouse opens its doors outside its normal weekday operating hours and has experts on hand to answer questions. Open house visitors can explore both the seasonal focus exhibits and the many other special features and benefits LaHouse displays.
