Home Weatherization Program
The Home Weatherization Program is created and designed specifically for lower income families to help provide more energy efficient homes.
The program provides energy conservation techniques such as:
- Installing Insulation (attic, wall and/or floor)
- Weather Stripping
- Caulking and Sealing Windows
- Installing Storm Windows
- Installing Outside Doors
Our program focuses on health and safety concerns, such as installing carbon monoxide sensors and smoke detectors, and removing open flame heaters.
Procedures recommended by the National Energy Audit Tool (NEAT) make houses more energy efficient by reducing energy usage, lowering utility bills, and making the house a more comfortable place to live.
To qualify for this program, the homeowner must:
- Be a resident of Etowah County
- Meet income guidelines
- Complete an application
Priority is given to seniors, the handicapped, households with children age 12 & under, and date of application. Applications for this program may be downloaded, picked up at the office, or mailed/emailed to you upon request. Please reach out to us with any questions.
