Weatherization Assistance Program
The Weatherization Assistance Program is a Federal program managed by the North Carolina Department of Environmental Quality. It is designed to help residents who meet federal low-income guidelines to lower their energy usage and costs. This is achieved by home weatherization and client education.
Weatherizing a home involves conducting an energy assessment to identifying the most cost –effective energy improvements that need to be performed on the dwelling, and then making those improvements at no cost to the household.
The three major improvements performed in home weatherization are:
Health and Safety
Reducing excessive air infiltration
Reducing heat loss through attics, walls and floor
Tuning or otherwise making the heating and air systems more efficient
HARRP- Heating and Air Replacement Program: designed to assist clients experiencing inoperable units.
