What is Weatherization?
Weatherization is a series of energy saving measures, which can be done in your home to help you use less energy. Weatherization is designed to make your home more comfortable and save you money on your utility bills.
The Weatherization Program’s mission is to enhance the well-being of low-income residents, particularly those persons who are most vulnerable such as the elderly, the handicapped, and children, through the installation of energy efficient and energy-related health and safety measures, thus benefiting clients through reduced energy bills, enhanced comfort, and the mitigation of energy related health risks.
The energy saving measures may include insulating your attic and outside walls; sealing cracks and holes in the walls, floors, and ceilings; and cleaning and tuning your furnace.
BEGIN SAVING MONEY ON YOUR ENERGY BILLS NOW!!!
- Make sure all windows and doors are closed and latched when heating or air conditioning your home.
- Turn the temperature on your water heater to the lowest setting that still gives you hot water.
- Set your thermostat at 68-70 degrees during the winter and 78-80 degrees during the summer.
- Turn off lights when they are not in use. If you have children, teach them to turn off lights and conserve energy.
- Check and change your furnace filter monthly.
