Weatherization

Is your home cold and drafty in the winter, sizzling and stifling in the summer? Moreover, your utility bill is more than you can afford? Weatherization can resolve all of these problems.

Weatherization is a program to reduce energy use and lower utility bills. First, the residence is evaluated for energy loss. Then steps are taken to increase energy efficiency that may include insulation in the walls, floor, and attic, replacement of broken windows, weatherstripping and caulking around windows and doors as well as testing of the heating system.

Qualified low-income households and single mothers receive weatherization at no charge. Renters and homeowners are both eligible for weatherization however, for renters the landlord’s permission for changes may be necessary.

On Washington Weatherization Day 2015 the program was extended to help reduce chronic conditions such as asthma. Weatherization Plus Health is the name of the new service that cleans and seals ductwork, air infiltration and evaluation of heating system. Learn about weatherization for your home.
