Weatherization programs: The “extreme house makeover”
Home weatherization projects are home improvements to protect your home from the outside elements. This improves the energy efficiency of your home helping you stay comfortable while earning big savings.
Homeowners and renters are eligible. If you currently rent your house, the authorization of your landlord is required.
