Weatherization has come a long way since it first became a common home improvement. At first, people concentrated their weatherization efforts on simple, low-cost measures to save energy, like adding weather stripping to windows and doors. Now that many of those low-cost measures have been done, it’s time to move onto bigger and better things. Today, weatherization consists of making cost-effective improvements that will lower homeowners’ energy bills and save them money over time.
Examples of Weatherization
• Adding insulation to the walls and roofs
• Investing in more efficient heating and cooling equipment
• Investing in more efficient water heaters, lighting, appliances, and more
• Replacing doors & windows with more energy-efficient models
• All-around safety checks and improvements
• And more!
Any homeowner can work with a qualified contractor to properly weatherize their home and realize strong energy savings. Lower-income homeowners can also take advantage of the Weatherization Assistance Program (WAP), a federal program that works with homeowners and contractors to add cost-effective weatherization improvements and picks up some of the cost. And of course, Phillips Air Care is here to help every step of the way.
