The goal of the Weatherization Assistance Program (WAP) is to lower a household’s energy costs by installing materials to make the home more comfortable and energy efficient. WAP is a federally funded program offered at no cost to eligible households.

Services can include identifying and sealing areas where hot air seeps into the home, installing attic and wall insulation, installation of LED light bulbs, low flow showerheads and sink faucets and replacement of qualified appliances with Energy Star rated models. You can learn more about WAP by watching the video below.
