Rockingham homeowners and renters can get free or low-cost window inserts to help keep their homes
warm this winter. Window inserts are a simple, effective way to weatherize your home. The Window
Dresser program returning to Rockingham/Bellows Falls for the 3rd year, offering free window inserts
to eligible households in the community. All households eligible for LIHEAP or other public assistance
programs qualify for up to 10 free inserts.
If you are interested but do not qualify for free inserts, you can purchase them for about $40-60 per
window. Both owners and renters are eligible for this program, and Efficiency Vermont offers a $100
rebate if you pay your electric bill and buy at least three inserts.
Window Insulating Inserts are a great option for homeowners and renters because they do not require
any fasteners, so they easily slide into existing window frames. Each insulating window insert is made of a custom-made pine frame wrapped in two layers of tightly sealed, clear polyolefin film and finished
with a compressible foam gasket. The foam allows the inserts to be easily slid into place in the fall and
removed in the spring, while holding firmly enough to provide a tight, friction-based seal that stops
drafts and adds two more insulating air spaces between your home and your window. Find out more at
We are making appointments now to have two volunteers come into your home to measure windows
and collect payment (if applicable). Inserts must be measured and paid for by Oct. 5. The build dates are Nov. 3-8, 2023, at the St. Charles Parish Hall/Social Center, 25 Cherry Hill St., Bellows Falls. At least one person from each household getting inserts is expected to volunteer on one or more of the build dates (depending on the order size), or send a friend if they cannot.
Anyone interested in scheduling a volunteer to measure their windows, ordering window inserts, and/or participating in the build, or have questions should Peter Bergstrom at 802-444-1860 or
