The Weatherization Assistance Program assists eligible families and individuals by reducing their heating/cooling costs and improving the safetyof their homes through energy efficiency measures.
Energyefficiency measures performed through the program include air sealing (weather-stripping, caulking), wall and ceiling insulation, heating system improvements or replacement, efficiency improvements in lighting, hot watertank and pipe insulation, and refrigerator replacements with highly efficient Energy Star rated units. Household energy use reductions andresultant energy cost savings can be significant.
Weatherization is the process by which targeted measures are performed on a home that has a direct result on reducing energy bills. Weatherization services are provided to seniors, low-income families and individuals who are handicap and qualify for the Federal Poverty Income Guidelines. These services are available to residents of Clayton, Henry, and Fayette Counties.
There are four areas in which these measures are accomplished.
After the test is completed, the staff uses the “N.E.A.T.” audit to determine the extent of Weatherization work to be done on the home.
