Weatherization

Home weatherization assistance is made possible through a partnership with the U.S. Department of Energy and the Florida Department of Community Affairs.

Program Overview

The program is designed to reduce energy consumption in the home.  By reducing the energy bills of low-income families as opposed to offering aid, weatherization reduces dependency and liberates these funds for spending on more pressing family issues. On average, weatherization reduces overall energy bills by $358 per year at current prices. This spending, in turn, spurs low-income communities toward job growth and economic development.

Specific energy conservation measures  include: installing or adding attic insulation; repairing or replacing deteriorated exterior doors and windows; installing thresholds and weather-stripping; installing low flow showerheads and pipe insulation on water heater lines; installing water heater jackets; repairing a/c ducts; replacing a/c filters; installing energy efficient light bulbs; and replacing inefficient air conditioners, refrigerators and water heaters.

The program currently serves an average of 90 homes each year depending on the size of the project and the services needed.
