What is Weatherization?

Weatherization is the process of making homes more energy-efficient, helping homeowners save money on their energy bills. This is achieved through a range of techniques, such as adding insulation, sealing air leaks, repairing heating and cooling systems, and replacing lights and outdated appliances. By reducing the amount of energy needed to heat and cool homes, weatherization can lead to significant savings on monthly energy bills. 

These savings can add up over time, potentially saving homeowners hundreds to thousands of dollars. Weatherization can also lead to lower energy prices and a more stable energy market for homeowners. This program is an important tool for promoting energy efficiency and sustainability, and can benefit homeowners, communities, and the environment.
