Proudly serving all of Davis, Morgan and Weber Counties
The Weatherization program reduces energy cost for low-income families by improving the efficiency of their homes.
Weatherization services are available free of charge to any income qualifying individuals in Davis, Morgan and Weber Counties. Weatherization measures can be added to single-family homes, multi-family dwellings, and mobile homes.
The typical measures include installing insulation, reducing air infiltration, performing tune-ups and repairs to heating systems, replacing appliances to improve efficiency and safety, and replacing incandescent lighting with compact fluorescent bulbs.
Weatherization crews also address energy-related health and safety conditions, particularly carbon monoxide and combustion safety.

What is the Weatherization Program?
Weatherization helps low-income individuals and families reduce energy costs and increase comfort and safety in their homes. We help clients with energy education, indoor air quality, combustion safety, and energy efficiency. Weatherization improvements may include wall, floor, ceiling and duct insulation; windows, caulking, door repair or replacement, weather-stripping, furnace tune-ups, repairs and replacements, and carbon monoxide testing.
How does the Weatherization Program work?
Weatherization begins with an energy audit. The auditor inspects the home inside and outside, including crawl spaces, attics, and furnace rooms. The auditor checks insulation, health and safety concern and tests indoor air quality. Clients complete a questionnaire about indoor air quality that the auditor carefully reviews and discusses with the client. The auditor performs a blower door test to determine air movement through the home and where air leakage occurs, and educates the client on energy conservation.
The Energy Audit:
The auditor evaluates the information with computer software (called the "NEAT Audit") and prints a list of needed work. The software compares anticipated energy savings from the weatherization measures to the cost of the work. With this report, we determine the most cost effective energy savings measures. The auditor designs a detailed work plan for each area of the home, including insulation, air infiltration, ventilation, heating, health and safety, and windows and doors.
After the initial energy audit has been completed and reviewed, the audit will be assigned to a work crew who will complete the insulation, furnace tune-ups, and other weatherization measures. This review process normally takes 6-8 weeks to complete.
When all work is complete, the Supervisor will perform a final closing inspection that includes another blower door test to determine air leakage reduction. He ensures that the home now has an acceptable range of air infiltration.
What is an Energy Crisis?
Any home that has been weatherized after September 30, 1994 may not be re-weatherized, under the Department of Energy guidelines. Please note that if you have a non-functioning heating system in your home, we may consider this situation as an energy crisis. Complete the Crisis Application to see if we may help you at this time.
Carefully review the income guidelines and the instructions on the application. Complete the application entirely and sign and date all associated pages. If you rent your home, the owner must complete the Weatherization Rental Agreement and have a Notary Public witness signature.
I'm a renter; do I still qualify for weatherization?
Yes, the weatherization program is available for low income families, which can include both renters and home owners. If you are a renter, however, you must have the landlord show proof of ownership for the home you are renting and complete and notarize the Landlord Rental Agreement Form.
How much is it going to cost me to weatherize my home?
If you are a homeowner and qualify for the program we will weatherize your home at no charge to you. We are a non-profit organization designed to assist low income families. If you are a renter, basic services will be provided at no cost. For more substantial services, the landlord may be required to participate in the cost of those services.
