Energy Efficiency & Weatherization Upgrades
Through the Weatherization program, the state of Wisconsin hires agencies to help eligible households save energy. The weatherization agency for your area, ADVOCAP (Fond du Lac County) Hartford CDA (Dodge County), receives a list of WHEAP participants and may reach out to you if you’re eligible. If you are interested in this service, you are welcome to contact your local agency to see if you can participate. If you’re selected, ADVOCAP/Hartford CDA (provider dependant on county) will evaluate your home to decide what upgrades are needed. Projects are completed by agency crews and subcontractors.
Weatherization services vary depending on how a home was built and its condition. Some common services include:
- Insulate attics, walls and floors
- Insulate or replace a water heater
- Install energy efficient lighting
- Seal air leakages
- Repair or replace a furnace
- Perform a general health and safety inspection
These upgrades will reduce your home’s utility bills and save energy while making your home warmer in the winter and cooler in the summer.
You may be eligible for weatherization services if:
- You qualify for WHEAP. This is why it’s important for you to apply for energy assistance as soon as possible.
- Your dwelling/apartment has not been weatherized before.
- Your household meets certain priorities that may include a high energy burden or use, an elderly or disabled member or a child under six.
