Belfast/Searsport Window Dressers, serving Waldo County, announces another busy year saving residents money on fuel bills, keeping homes more comfortable, reducing greenhouse gas emissions, and having fun working together for a good cause.

See www.windowdressers.org for more details about this nonprofit organization that has been helping Mainers for over a decade.

Volunteer labor keeps the cost of inserts low and anyone needing help covering costs can get up to ten, pine inserts at no charge.

In a Window Dressers news release, 2022 senior customer Phyllis Greathouse of Swanville said, “I was so pleased with my low-cost inserts providing lower fuel bills this year. I called friends and told them how they could benefit from them... I told them that they may be able to obtain up to 10 energy efficient inserts free.”

Inserts are available in pre-painted white or natural pine. Customers can paint or stain pine inserts to match their window frames.

“They are barely visible once installed and research has shown that these inserts generally pay for themselves in two heating seasons or less,” said the release.

Anyone wanting to reduce fuel costs – whether you live in an apartment, trailer, or single-family home or you are a commercial customer – can sign up.

As 2022 customer Rhonda Pellerin, of Arpel’s Studio in Winterport said, “LOW cost, BIG savings!! I’m so glad I found out about WindowDressers window inserts. My home and business have never been so warm and cozy.”

Anyone interested in getting inserts this year is encouraged to sign up at www.windowdressers.org.

“Our capacity is limited; last year, orders were closed in late July,” said the release.

Custom measuring of your windows will begin in the Spring. Anyone needing an older insert repaired due to pet or other incidental damage can sign up online as well.

There will be a “rewrapping” workshop in Searsport this October and the workshop to produce new inserts will take place at the Belfast Boathouse in November.

Don’t delay – get ready for next winter now by going to www.windowdressers.org. Questions?
