Weatherization

The Weatherization Program provides free energy related repairs to income eligible households to make their homes more energy efficient.  Participants of the program may own their own home or rent.  Rental property can be weatherized with a signed agreement from the landlord.  Homes that have been weatherized will require less energy to heat and cool, resulting in lower utility bills and a safer standard of living for individuals.

The program uses Whole House Weatherization.  The Whole House approach treats the house as a single energy-consuming system, rather than as a loose collection or unrelated pieces of equipment.  Whole House Weatherization requires advanced diagnostic skills and cost-effective measure selection and installation.

The Weatherization Program is funded through the Georgia Environmental Facilities Authority www.gefa.org and Atlanta Gas and Light Company.
