Pheffer Urges Furnace Fan Energy Program
Assemblywoman Audrey I. Pheffer wants area residents to be aware of LIPA's Efficient Furnace Fan Program, which offers savings with new oil, gas or propane heating systems.
LIPA is offering $200 rebates on new furnaces with electronically commutated motors (ECM). An ECM is an energy efficient motor which can adjust its speed to ensure the best possible performance of a furnace.
"In these tough economic times, energy costs can become a burden. This program offers LIPA customers the opportunity to receive rebates for purchasing qualifying appliances that will save en - ergy, while also lowering their bills," said Pheffer.
The rebate is available to LIPA's residential customers using a participating contractor to replace the furnace. All rebate applications must be re - ceived within 60 days of installation and contain all required documentation. For more information call LIPA's InfoLine at 1-800-692-2626.
101 CC Meeting Moves Locations
In a successful experiment to bring in more community residents to its meetings, last month the 101 Precinct Community Council moved its monthly meeting from the precinct house on Mott Avenue to the Beth Abraham building located on Cornaga Avenue. Because of the positive response to the move, the meetings will continue to be held at the new location. The next meeting will be on Wednesday, Nov - em ber 18 at 6:30 p.m.
All local residents, business owners and community.
