Home Weatherization

  • Program Status: Open
  • This Program is Open Year Round

Save Money by Having a More Energy Efficient Home

Weatherization is a program which helps individuals with limited income cut their fuel bills, and save money by having a more energy efficient home.

Eligibility

Anyone either owner or renter, who occupies the home they wish to have weatherized and whose income in the past 12 months does not exceed the guidelines.

If the property you are living in was weatherized on or before September 30, 1993, then it is eligible to be audited again. This date is set by the Federal Government; it is not a ‘10 year basis’.

Income Guidelines

Fees

None, the program is FREE

What Does the Program Provide?

On Site Energy Audit — A CADCOM approved Energy Auditor will conduct a free energy analysis and will determine what work needs to be done.

Home Weatherization Work — The work will then be given to a contractor, who will make repairs that may include: caulking windows, window repairs, energy efficient light bulbs pipe wrap, attic insulation, weatherstripping doors, adding doorsweeps, and tuning up gas or oil heaters if needed.

Program Background and Details

This program runs year round; apply early to try and have the work done before it gets too cold or hot. The same reasons your home gets cold in the winter can lead to excessive heat in the summer.

Information will be provided to you at the time of audit on “Energy and Safety Tips” and “Protect Your Family From Lead In Your Home”.

WHO PAYS FOR THIS?

The state and federal governments pay through your tax dollars. There is no cost to you for any labor or materials, and no lien is ever placed on the house or property.

WHERE’S THE CATCH?

There is none. Just ask your friends and neighbors. Every month, more than 2,500 homes across Pennsylvania are being done.

WHY SHOULD YOU APPLY?

You can’t afford not to! You need to save money. We all need to conserve energy. Through weatherization, both can be accomplished.
