Weatherization Wednesday: Staff Shoutout!

Everyone, meet Chris Kroszner
Senior Home Energy Auditor

Chris is part of the Weatherization Services team and has been working as an energy auditor with BCOC for over 20 years. He has also worked as the weatherization program manager & trainer for other auditors over the years.

“As energy auditors, we inspect entire homes looking for anything that may be causing uncomfortable areas of the home and where there are energy losses. We also look for any health and safety issues that may affect the people in the home. There are several tests we perform to determine the level of energy loss in the home as well as for carbon monoxide, gas leaks, etc. We give contractors a list of work to be done in the home and then monitor and inspect their work.

It is most satisfying as an energy auditor to make improvements to homes and know that the homeowners will be more comfortable, safer, and the fuel and electric bills will be less. A side benefit of the program is being able to pass on information to the homeowner about their home and how to make it work better for them, whether it is heater maintenance, thermostat use, or just habits that will save energy year-round.”

BCOC is saddened to hear the news that our friend, Jim McGinnis, passed away last week. Jim was a local reporter for the Bucks County Courier Times and Intelligencer newspapers.
He often wrote stories about poverty, homelessness, and social issues that affected individuals and families with low income. Jim attended ES graduations and poverty simulations and also wrote stories to help Give A Christmas raise funds.
Thank you Jim for being a voice and advocate for under-resourced families, you will be missed.
