06/12/2009: "Low-Income Weatherization"


It may be warm now, but this is the best time to think of taking some action to be ready for that cold winter weather that will return. There programs available to help low-income SJ County homeowners with weatherization, and to make needed repairs to their homes.

Weatherization services are available for homeowners and renters (with landlord approval). There is no cost for this service to either low-income participants or landlords with low-income tenants.



Weatherization is a program offered by the Opportunity Council (an Action Agency located in Bellingham who services San Juan County). The program goal is to increase the energy efficiency of a home thereby reducing energy costs while also ensuring the health and safety of the household.

Weatherization addresses home safety and health concerns and aims to increase the durability of a home while improving indoor air quality and home comfort.

Typical measures include attic, floor and wall insulation, draft proofing, furnace and woodstove cleaning and safety checks, duct sealing and insulation, ventilation improvements and baseload conservation measures, including compact fluorescent light bulbs, low flow shower heads, and possible refrigerator replacement.
