What is Weatherization?

The Weatherization Assistance Program is the nation's LARGEST residential energy efficiency program.

Very simply, weatherization improves heating and cooling efficiency and energy savings by ensuring your home holds in heat and air conditioning while keeping hot and cold air out.  At NO CHARGE to the client, income eligible families receive a comprehensive home energy audit which is an assessment of the entire home. Our certified energy auditor will search the entire home inside and out looking for inefficiencies and safety concerns using advanced equipment and techniques. The energy audit will identify a customized account of areas for cost-effective improvements. The improvements will be provided FREE OF CHARGE by our network of professional crews and contractors.

Types of Assistance

Weatherization services may include:

  • weatherstripping
  • caulking around doors and windows
  • cleaning, testing, repairs or replacement
    of refrigerators, heating and/or cooling systems
  • adding insulation to walls, ceilings and foundations
  • infiltration reduction
  • lighting and ventilation upgrades

Who is Eligible?

Eligibility is based on household income relative to federal LOW-INCOME GUIDELINES. If a household contains a member who receives Supplemental Security Income (SSI), Temporary Assistance for Needy Families (TANF) benefits or utility assistance from the Low Income Energy Assistance Program (LIEAP), the household is automatically considered eligible for weatherization services.

How Do I Apply?

It’s simple! Contact the local weatherization service provider located in your county.
