Hundreds of millions of dollars are leaking out of our homes as you read and it can be prevented right now! Weatherization is the most immediate answer to energy independence and a clean energy future. Anyone can do it, it is easy to do, all the tools are easily available, and you could save over $400 on average in the first year alone. The Weatherization Assistance Program (WAP) has to date weatherized over one million homes, but 38 million more qualify for this program.
Starting small with DIY projects to weatherize your home like caulking windows, weatherstripping windows and doors and blowing cheap foam insulation into drafty gaps in your home’s envelope can save you 10% right off the bat. Reduce demand on energy, fossil fuel consumption, climatic pollution and create jobs all while saving you money!
