Weatherization

What Is Weatherization

Possible Services

Energy Audit: This is an assessment that will be performed to determine the weatherization needs of your home.

Insulation: Depending on the existing R-values and accessibility, insulation may be added to attics, floors, walls and duct systems to improve overall energy efficiency of your home.

Air Sealing: Minimizes excessive drafts by caulking interior molding/trim, sealing around plumbing/drain pipes protruding through floors/walls and weather-stripping doors.

Ventilation: Adding proper ventilation can help create a healthier living environment and reduce moisture levels in a home. Furnaces with ducts and all gas appliances need proper ventilation in a home to work more efficiently.

Base-load Analysis & Reduction: LED light bulbs may be installed to minimize lighting costs. Watt usage tests may be performed on refrigerators to determine if replacement is possible, according to set guidelines.

Limitations: In some cases, we may not be able to provide some services because of structural deficiencies.
