If you pay the utilities, efficiency benefits you directly. Our clients often save 15% to 30% or more on fuel bills.
Even if you don't pay the utilities yourself, there are important benefits for you:
- End complaint calls for frozen pipes and comfort problems
- Reduce ice dams, rot, paint failure, and moisture problems
- Lower turnover and tenant arrears with more affordable bills
“…When I signed up for an evaluation by the Weatherization Program I had no idea how important they would become to my ability to keep my home. I knew my furnace was getting old and had no idea how I would afford a new one. The staff came and did a thorough evaluation from lights, to appliances, attic insulation, air sealing doors, carbon monoxide detectors, bathroom exhaust fan and an inspection of that old furnace. They replaced my furnace and fixed all the other problems I didn’t even know I had! Not only was the evaluation thorough but the workmen were wonderful. I was so impressed with their level of professionalism and work ethic. I just don’t know what I would have done without their help!" – Program participant
“…My oil furnace was 43 years old. They installed a new gas furnace and an on-demand hot water heater…insulation above the ceiling and put a house wrap around the basement, also a steel outside door (I had a hollow core door before)…and the drop in my heating and electric bills was astounding…” – Program participant
