What is Weatherization

Weatherization is a service provided at no cost to the tenant or owner of a home if qualified. Basic weatherization services can:

  • Reduce your home heating bills.
  • Save energy.
  • Make your home more comfortable: warmer in the winter and cooler in the summer.

Some of the services could include:

  • Insulation of walls and attics
  • Air sealing
  • Install energy efficient compact flourescent bulbs
  • Test, repair or replace furnaces and water heaters
  • Replace inefficient refrigerators with Energy Star units
  • Perform a general health and safety inspection of the home
  • Provide information about maintenance and energy conservation

How do I Qualify?

  • Applying for Energy Assistance is the first step in determining your eligibility.
  • Schedule an appointment with Community Advocates or UMOS (414.270.4653)
  • Your house or apartment (up to 4 units) has not been weatherized before.
  • 50% of the building’s tenants must qualify for Energy Assistance (Example: A 4-unit building would need two tenants to qualify for the program).
  • Your household meets certain priorities that may include a high energy burden or use, an elderly or disabled member or a child under six.
  • If you qualify, you will be referred to either SDC’s Weatherization Program, La Casa de Esperanza or Partners for Community Development’s Weatherization Program.
