Qualifying Measures

These are the most common weatherization measures provided at low or no cost to the customer:

  • Insulation – Installing the appropriate amount of insulation in your home will not only help reduce your cooling and heating costs but also make your home more comfortable.
  • Water-saving Devices – Low-flow showerheads and faucet aerators can reduce the amount of water your home has to heat, which reduces the amount of energy consumed by your water heater.

Other Qualifying Measures

These additional measures may be provided by the Service Provider at a cost to the customer:

  • High-efficiency room air conditioner
  • Floor insulation
  • ENERGY STAR® appliances
  • Energy-efficient windows

Selecting a Service Provider

We encourage you to use our How to Select a Service Provider guide to help you compare providers.

The Service Provider will evaluate your home to determine which measures will save the most energy and produce the greatest reduction in home energy costs. Some providers charge for this pre-assessment and some do not.

Each Service Provider is required to ensure all installations are completed with quality workmanship. Be sure to inspect the work before signing any final forms. You should contact your Service Provider to resolve any issues with the installation. The next step would be to utilize the complaint procedure outlined in the Consumer Disclosure and Protection form provided by the Service Provider.
