What is Weatherization? Weatherization saves people money and helps reduce dependency on fuel assistance by making their homes more energy efficient.
For eligible clients, state-certified Weatherization specialists perform an energy audit on the client's home. If approved, a trained work crew may make improvements that can include: installing insulation; installation of carbon monoxide and fire detectors; weatherstripping. All work is subject to the availability of funding.
Weatherization is statewide program administered by the New Hampshire Office of Energy and Planning. The program is funded by federal grants from the U.S. Department of Energy and the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services Low Income Home Energy Assistance Program.
Priority is given to the elderly; disabled residents; household with children under the age of 6; households with high fuel use; and the number of years a household has been on fuel assistance. Weatherization measures are typically prioritized by cost effectiveness and by health and safety standards.
To learn if you qualify for the program, please make an appointment to go through the application process at your nearest Community Action Partnership Community Services Office. Certified accepted applications are valid for 12 months from the date of application. All work is subject to the availability of funding.
