Energy Conservation Services

Energy Conservation Services helps low-income households with the installation of energy conservation materials and products to help lower utility bills and help maintain a safer, more comfortable home.

What is it?

We offer a range of free services to qualified families that include an energy audit, safety testing and repair of heating equipment and the installation of many energy conservation measures.

Treatments that may be done in your home include the following:

  • Installation of attic insulation
  • Air sealing your home with caulk, foam and weather-stripping
  • Insulating your water heater tank with an insulation blanket
  • Replacing incandescent light bulbs with compact fluorescent lights
  • Installing low flow showerheads
  • Providing a furnace/boiler cleaning and tune-up or repairs to the heating system

Who is eligible?

Applicants must prove ownership of the housing unit. For rental units, landlords must prove ownership and also agree to have the work done. Priority is given to clients who are elderly or disabled, and to families with children.

Each house is inspected after the weatherization work has been done to check for quality and completeness.
