NeighborImpact’s Weatherization program provides free retrofit repair services which can include adding insulation, sealing leaky ducts and repairing heating systems for income-qualified clients. Weatherization staff conduct an on-site energy audit, a four-hour activity for evaluating and documenting the existing condition of your home. This information is then used to determine which measures will save you the most money on your utility bill.
The program is available to eligible low-income clients in Crook, Deschutes and Jefferson counties and to the Confederated Tribes of Warm Springs. Clients can be renters or homeowners and live in mobile homes or stick built homes. Income guidelines for program eligibility are listed below.
The Weatherization Program typically serves 100 low-income households a year and has provided weatherization assistance to more than 1,500 households to date. Clients frequently report warmer homes and lower energy bills.
If you are interested in getting your home weatherized, please call 541-316-2034 or email firstname.lastname@example.org to see if you qualify. If so, you will be sent an application to fill out and return.
All weatherization clients must attend a NeighborImpact Energy Education workshop which provides instruction on energy conservation strategies and techniques. Participants also receive energy-saving items for their home. Energy Education workshops are open to anyone in the community. If you’d like to attend a workshop, please call 541-306-2034.
