The U.S. Department of Energy’s Weatherization Assistance program is the nation’s core program for delivering energy efficiency services to low-income households. Professionally trained weatherization crews perform on-site home energy audits using state of the art equipment to identify outside drafts and inspect heating and cooling systems for efficiency.
Weatherization crews install insulation, seal off air leaks, make modifications to (or replace) existing heating systems and make minor repairs to ensure safety. Once installed, these energy saving measures will help to reduce your heating and cooling costs for years to come. Household income must be at or below 200% of the poverty level established by the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services to be eligible for Weatherization.
