YARMOUTH, Maine (NEWS CENTER) -- A church is looking to save on its heating bill in the New Year.

The Yarmouth First Parish Congregational Church is beginning the second phase of a two-year weatherization project. The first phase, which was completed last year, included improvements to a new addition to the church. Because of those renovations, the parish has used twenty percent less heating oil this year. Those savings are expected to increase in 2014, as work continues in the sanctuary to better insulate the roof. Joshua Wojick of Upright Frameworks says in addition to saving money, parishioners will feel more comfortable in the space, and the same would be true in a weatherized house.
