How does it work?

Weatherization refers to a series of steps you can take to reduce the amount of energy required to heat and cool your home. Weatherization may involve air sealing, insulation, door and window upgrades, and ventilation improvements.

The first step towards weatherization for most people is to get an energy audit — a service in which a trained professional comes to your house, performs tests, and identifies trouble areas in your home. Energy audits may be offered for little to no cost by your local electric utility.
