Project Description

Did you know that many homes leak and waste energy?

You can save energy and money by sealing your doors, plugging leaks, and insulating your walls.

Weatherize your home and help fight climate change!


Weatherizing your home can help you:

  • Make your home more comfortable, with fewer drafts

4. Get a contractor to seal or insulate the rest

5. Enjoy a comfortable, energy-efficient home
