DECEMBER 2021
WEATHERIZATION SERVICES AVAILABLE

The Weatherization program enables low-income families to reduce their energy bills by making their homes more energy efficient by tightening the homes from heat and cold at no charge to the client.

If individuals or families meet the income requirements (200% of the federal poverty limit or less) and are approved for weatherization assistance services, their home will be evaluated to identify the most effective energy and dollar saving improvements which can be made.

Possible Improvements that could be made to a home include the following:

• Add insulation to the attic, walls and/or floors. If insulation is added, holes may be drilled in the siding and vents may be added to the roof. RESULT: The amount of heat loss through the walls, ceilings and floors will be reduced.

• Perform an efficiency inspection on natural gas, propane and fuel oil furnaces, boilers and water heaters. RESULT: More heat will be gained from the same amount of fuel used.

• Replace broken glass in primary windows. RESULT: The amount of cold air coming in will be reduced.

• Install or adjust door weather-stripping, thresholds, and/or door sweeps. RESULT: The amount of cold air coming in will be reduced.

Call (402)729-2278 to find out if you qualify or to learn more.
