ReEnergize Pittsburgh

Did you know that the average age of Pittsburgh housing is 55 years old, that is compared to just 37 years old for the country as a whole. Even more outstanding is the fact that 22 of the 90 neighborhoods in the city have an average home age of over 100 years old. If you own an older homes, the coming cold weather may mean higher utility bills and a chilly home.
