Weatherization Assistance Program
The Weatherization Assistance Program provides energy efficient services in both Clinton and Franklin Counties. Acceptance to this program is based on income eligibility; we serve both homeowners and renters! After being approved for the program, a comprehensive energy audit will be conducted and a work scope created by a certified energy professional. For those approved, the services are at no cost to the applicant. Audits can take anywhere from 2-3 hours depending on the size of the home. Possible measures that could be corrected are: heating systems repairs/replacement, distribution of the heating system, insulation, ventilation, indoor air quality, smoke alarms, CO alarms, venting of dryer, refrigerator, and other health and safety concerns. Weatherization is a great way to conserve energy and save money on heating and cooling your home throughout the year!
