The award was presented to Fenn-Woode Development because of Fenn-Woode's recycling process, saline - chlorinated pool, lights on sensors and an energy audit. The energy audit was performed by Competitive Resources. They sampled 10% of the apartments for energy loss. These test results showed where heat loss was prevalent. With the permission of each resident, Competitive Resources, accompanied by a member of the Fenn-Woode staff, installed energy saving light bulbs, installed weather stripping, added foam insulation to any penetrations, added a door sweep, caulked around windows and doors, placed foam insulation on the hot water heater piping, added a spray head faucet that saves on water usage which reduced the energy costs. It was determined that each resident should average a savings of $84.00 per year on their energy bill. Throughout the year there are Tradeshows held by the National Apartment Association and the Connecticut Apartment Association. The Fenn-Woode staff attend the tradeshows and training classes provided. The tradeshows allow us to learn about new products and ideas to improve upon life at Fenn-Woode Development.
