Welcome to Weatherization
 


FOLLOWING IS A BRIEF DESCRIPTION OF THE SERVICES THAT MAY BE PERFORMED, DEPENDING ON WEATHERIZATION NEEDS AND/OR THE CONDITION OF YOUR HOME:

AIR INFITLRATION: 
Minimize excessive drafts by caulking interior molding/trim, sealing around plumbing/drain pipes protruding through floors and walls.  Repair broken windows.  Weather-strip doors.  These measures may be performed in accordance with tests done by our Auditor at the time of his visit.

INSULATION:  Depending on existing R-values and accessibility, insulation may be added to attics, floors, walls and duct systems to improve overall energy efficiency of your home.  Insulation may also be added to your water heater, depending on model and specifications.

BASELOAD ANALYSIS & REDUCTION: 
Compact fluorescent light bulbs may be installed in place of incandescent bulbs to minimize lighting costs.  Watt usage tests may be performed on refrigerators to determine if replacement is possible, according to set guidelines.

LIMITATIONS: 
In some cases, we may not be able to provide some services because of structural deficiencies, i.e., leaking roof, knob and tube wiring, dry rot, etc.  Other barriers could be no ready access to attic or crawl spaces, standing water under house, etc.  There is an opportunity for repairs to be made within a reasonable amount of time, with the expense to the owner or client, by a contractor of their choosing.

WINDOWS:  IF
windows are to be installed, cosmetic treatment of the window trim will not be included in the measure.

 

Waiting periods vary depending on funding available, priority criteria, and number of applicants on waiting list.
