Weatherization programs help income eligible homeowners and renters save money by improving energy efficiency thereby reducing energy costs. Professionally trained crews perform free or low-cost energy audits to evaluate homes, apartments, and other dwellings to determine what efficiency upgrades to recommend. Upgrades may include things such as: insulation, appliance upgrades, new furnace installations, and sealing drafts around windows and doors.
Any recommendations for improvements to your home may be undertaken on your own, or if you qualify, these improvements may be covered under various income-based weatherization programs.
