Who qualifies, length:


There is no cost to eligible Energy Assistance clients to be able to have Weatherization work done to the home. The services for the Weatherization program are available to those who own or rent and/or reside in single family homes or multi-family homes. The Weatherization process takes place over an extended period of time. Starting from the outreach, the auditing of the home to determine which Weatherization steps will be completed, to the production of the work and the inspection of all final work completed, the length of time for these services could take anywhere from 6-10 months or longer for the full completion of the Weatherization process.


The main focus of the program:

The main focus of the Weatherization program is to reduce energy consumption, educate customers on how they can continue to save energy, complete certain services to help improve the health & safety of the building and help identify some potential health hazards such as lead paint, mold, vermiculite, and asbestos. Not all Health & Safety Hazards are dealt with in the Weatherization Program but every effort is made to refer customers to the appropriate programs for possible help.
Here is a list of possible programs that could help with services that are outside of the Weatherization’s program area.

Deferral of Weatherization Services:


The decision to defer work on a client’s home is difficult but necessary in some cases. The Agency uses their best judgment in dealing with difficult situations, but the Weatherization Program will defer services if any of these are concerns before work has begun:
  • The customer refuses work items that cause the proposed cumulative Savings to Investment Ratio (SIR) to drop below 1.0.
  • A repair or health and safety measure cause the proposed cumulative SIR to drop below 1.0.
  • The building condition or occupants presents a serious crew or subcontractor safety concern.
  • There are no energy conservation measures to complete and/or the cumulative SIR is less than 1.0.
  • There are changes to household eligibility status.
  • The building is listed for sale, in foreclosure proceedings or is foreclosed.
  • The home contains vermiculite.
  • Clutter/restricted access to work areas.
  • Sewage/animal feces.
  • Vermin/pests.
  • Moisture/Mold.
  • Lead Paint hazard.
  • Chemical or Combustion hazard.
  • Remodeling and/or repair.
