Weatherization

The Weatherization Assistance Program provides assistance to low-income, elderly and disabled persons in order to make their homes more energy efficient, thereby reducing energy costs.

Clients may be any age, must be income eligible, may live in a house or mobile home as a homeowner or renter. For rental units, the property owner must pay a nominal fixed fee for the repair or replacement costs and not increase rent for two years from the completion date. This is available to all County residents.

Tests are performed to check for carbon monoxide, efficacy and air leakage.

Typical program services:

  • Caulking
  • Weather stripping
  • Repair of windows and doors
  • Insulation of all types
  • Replacement of water heaters
  • Installation of vents
  • Installation of vapor barriers
  • Building of attic and crawl space doors
