What is "Weatherization"?
Weatherization is a broad term that covers several aspects that save you money on your gas, electric, and water bills each month. When you apply for weatherization, a team member will come out and audit your home to see what kind of work needs to be done. Often times this includes looking for air leaks in windows, checking the quality of your home’s insulation, as well as testing the effectiveness of your air conditioner, heater, refrigerator, etc. to discover what is costing the most money for you on a monthly basis. From there, our team will work hard to address these issues to make your home more comfortable while also saving you money!
