Weatherizing Your Home

Who does it serve?

Eligible residents can apply to have their home weatherized at no cost. First, we do an energy audit and then if necessary, add insulation or make minor home repairs. ACCESS also refers clients to other agency programs and community resources. We make in-home visits to vulnerable residents and help them stay in a safe and healthy environment.

What does it provide?

  • ACCESS offers an Energy Education Program with tips to make homes more efficient.
  • A Low-Income Weatherization Program helps bring down energy costs.

Energy Education

The Energy Education Program provides valuable tips and efficiency products to help make your home more efficient. People can attend one of our conservation workshops to learn simple cost effective ways to lower household energy use and utility costs. This is a hands-on workshop and all eligible attendees receive a personal conservation “start-up” kit upon completion.
