Weatherization Program

Weatherization Really Works!

Do you receive Energy Assistance? Do you rent or own your home? If you answered yes to these questions, contact SDC’s Weatherization program to find out if we can SAVE YOU MONEY on your energy bills!

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)
  • Visit Community Advocates at 4906 W. Fond du Lac Avenue or 728 N. James Lovell Street; or UMOS at 2701 South Chase Avenue
  • 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.
