Home weatherization services can permanently lower your energy bills and enhance the comfort of your home; all at no cost to you. The service is sponsored by LIHEAP (Low Income Home Energy Assistance Program) and the Federal Department of Energy’s (DOE) Weatherization Assistance Program (WAP). Our energy–saving home improvements may include repair or replacement of exterior doors and windows, water heaters, stoves, furnaces and coolers, refrigerators and microwaves. We also install water restrictor-aerators, energy-sipping LED’s (compact florescent lights), door weather stripping, carbon monoxide and smoke detectors, sealing and patching of small cracks and holes and other minor repairs which help to conserve energy. We’ll also provide education on reducing your energy costs.
Upgrades and repairs can be performed on a single family home, town home, condo, apartment building or mobile home, with few restrictions. Authorization for repairs is required by the owner or an authorized agent for the property when the application is completed by a renter.
Weatherization service is available once every 5 years for eligible dwellings. Dwellings that have been weatherized multiple times may be forced to wait longer than 5 years before they become eligible again. Because of significant funding cuts, Federal law requires the WAP program to target households with low-incomes and high energy costs, taking into consideration households with elderly and disabled persons, and children aged 5 and younger.
