Energy Efficiency Programs
Energy Efficiency Programs included are Weatherization, Emergency Furnace Repair/Replacement, Residential Energy Efficiency Program, and the Cooling Program.
The Weatherization Program provides energy conservation services to low-income homeowners and renters to make their homes more energy efficient. The program helps to increase energy efficiency and reduce heating bills by concentrating on the problems of heat loss and air infiltration. Weatherproofing repairs such as insulation, caulking, and weather-stripping are provided to income-eligible households.
Emergency Furnace Repair and Replacement Program assists households with repair and replacement of unsafe heating systems. Clients must be eligible for the Fuel Assistance Program and may be required to make a co-payment.
Cooling Assistance helps those who require a cooled space in their home during the summer months. A medical verification is required and the household must meet income guidelines. Equipment purchased for the house from local suppliers can be a window air conditioner, ceiling fan, or repairing the existing cooling equipment. Electrical upgrading of the house for cooling equipment to run properly is also eligible.
