Weatherization FAQs

Once you apply for the Energy Assistance program, we will determine if you qualify for weatherization. If you qualify, you will be put on a waiting list.
We cannot predict a time period to receive weatherization. Once you are placed on our waiting list and we get to your name on the list, we will set up an energy audit. It is important that you continue to apply for the Energy Assistance program each year in order to remain on the list if we have not called you yet.
We can do tasks such as insulating, weather-stripping, caulking, pressure diagnostics and HVAC work.
Generally, no.


There is no cost to the homeowner/renter for the work done. However, the owner of the property may have a fee depending on the contract that has to be signed before weatherization can be done.

We occasionally have homes available for purchase. Please check our listing on this website to see if there are any current homes for sale.
