Weatherization Assistance Program

Homeowners can reduce energy costs and address health and safety concerns through weatherization.

The Weatherization Assistance Program (WAP) uses Whole House Weatherization, which treats the house as a single energy-consuming system, rather than a loose collection of unrelated pieces of equipment. It requires advanced diagnostic skills and cost-effective measure selection and installation. These conservation measures result in significant energy and cost savings in excess of 20 percent. Single-family homes, multifamily buildings and mobile homes are eligible.

Energy-efficiency measures performed through the program include:

  • Air sealing
  • Wall, floor and attic insulation
  • HVAC system improvements or replacement
  • Energy efficiency improvements in lighting
  • Hot water tank and pipe insulation
