Home Weatherization

Weatherization Agency Priorities and Service

The Division of Energy Services contracts with various agencies throughout the state to provide weatherization services to eligible households. Agencies include community action agencies, housing authorities, local governments and other non-profit organizations.

The weatherization agency for your area, agency name, will receive a list of eligible applicants from WHEAP and will determine service priority and the eligibility for your home. Your weatherization agency will contact the highest priority households to evaluate the home and decide what weatherization services are needed. Appropriate weatherization services will be completed by agency crews and subcontractors.

Services Available

Implementing basic weatherization services will:

  • Reduce your home heating bills
  • Save energy
  • Make your home warmer in the winter and cooler in the summer

Weatherization services differ with each home depending on how it was built and its condition. Some common weatherization services include:

  • Insulate attics, walls and floors
  • Insulate or replace water heater
  • Install energy efficient lighting
  • Reduce air leakage
  • Repair or replace furnace
  • Test and/or replace refrigerator
  • Perform a  general health and safety inspection
