Weatherization

Services

Weatherization includes the installation of energy conservation measures and provides energy education to help make your home safer and more comfortable. Our goal is to reduce energy costs while improving energy efficiency and ensuring health and safety for low-income families, particularly the elderly, people with disabilities, and families with young children.

Weatherization measures may include:

  • Weather-stripping, caulking doors and windows
  • Testing, repairing, or replacement* of refrigerators, water heaters, heating and/or cooling systems, and gas cooking appliance repair
  • Insulating walls, ceilings, floors and attics
  • Installing low-flow shower heads
  • Replacing interior and exterior lights
  • Duct repair and replacement

These changes help to increase the comfort of your home while saving you money. Without weatherization, homes waste energy, making heating/cooling units work harder to keep your home at a constant temperature, resulting in increased utility costs.

Additional components of the weatherization services are the Emergency Heating and Cooling Services Program (EHCS). The EHCS program assists families facing an energy crisis such as an inoperable water heater, furnace, or heating and cooling unit. Fresno EOC Weatherization may be able to assist eligible households with minor repairs or replacements for qualifying units when certain conditions are met. *
