Energy efficient home

Weatherization is the practice of protecting a building and its interior from the elements, particularly from sunlight, precipitation, and wind, and of modifying a building to reduce energy consumption and optimize energy efficiency. 

Is your energy bill high? Do your doors leak? Are there gaps in your insulation? You may be eligible for weatherization services if you meet these eligibility requirements
