Frequently Asked Questions
Once my house has been weatherized can it be done again?
Services are provided to qualified applicants who have never received assistance. Once we have installed energy conservation measures at your home, they should remain effective in lowering energy use and utility costs even after time has passed.
Does your weatherization program provide new windows?
Weatherization Services do not provide windows or roof replacement; however after a home inspection you may receive tune-up/repair of heating unit, insulation of attics, sidewalls and floors, insulation of heating ducts and water tanks, and reduction of air leakage from major sources. Work can vary in every situation and is tailored to the unique needs of your home.
Maybe! If you qualify, you might be able to enter into a lease or lease with option to purchase one of a limited amount of properties the organization currently owns. Please call our office for more information.
Roof replacement is not normally included in Weatherization services; however, occasionally a repair can be made. This is in conjunction to insulating the attic area adjacent to the repair and is only for the purpose of providing meaningful weatherization. If insulation gets wet it can cause mold/mildew and will not be energy efficient or safe. In some case a property can get deferred due to the need for work with a larger magnitude than what we are able to provide. Every project can be different from the next and we can provide more detailed information after an evaluation of your home.
