The U.S. Department of Energy’s Weatherization Assistance
program is the nation’s core program for delivering energy efficiency
services to low income households. Professionally trained

cooling systems for efficiency.
Weatherization crews install insulation, seal off air leaks, make
modifications to (or replace) existing heating systems and make minor
repairs to ensure safety.
Once installed, these energy saving measures will help to reduce your
heating and cooling costs for years to come.
