Are you ready to start saving money on your energy bills? Do you want to be warm in your home this winter? Arapahoe County Weatherization can help you do both with free Energy Efficiency Home Improvements program available to households that qualify based on income and other criteria.
Through an energy audit of your home, Arapahoe County Weatherization identifies common energy hogs, such as air infiltrations caused by the lack of insulation in walls, attics and crawl spaces, as well as gaps and cracks around plumbing penetrations, ductwork joints and doors and windows. Once these are identified, weatherization technicians will address them by adding insulation and conducting effective sealing of air leaks, allowing your home to retain the heat generated from the furnace.
Additionally, weatherization will make sure that your furnace and water heater are operating properly, repair or replace furnaces that pose a health and safety risk, and replace inefficient appliances, such as refrigerators and furnaces with energy-efficient units. All of the energy-efficiency improvements provided to your home will be inspected by a certified quality-control inspector to ensure adherence with Standard Work Specifications from the U.S. Department of Energy.
