All weatherization work is done at no cost to the individual resident. If the dwelling is a rental unit, the landlord must sign a landlord release form before any materials will be installed.

What Weatherization Includes

Weatherization of a home consists of the following:

  • A pre-inspection to determine the amount of work necessary to weatherize the home, in addition to checking heating appliances for safety and efficiency.
  • Furnaces found to be unsafe will be repaired, if possible, or replaced.
  • Infiltration work such as patching foundation, caulking and weatherstripping windows and exterior doors; sealing or replacing broken glass.
  • Wall and attic insulation will be considered. This is dependent upon the condition of wiring, roof condition, the amount of existing insulation, type of wall construction and siding.
  • Gable or roof vents will be installed, as required.
  • A final inspection will be conducted to determine if all the work has been completed.
