Weatherization is the application of energy efficiency measures to a home. These include ceiling, wall and floor insulation; closing heat-escaping gaps by caulking, weather stripping, or broken window replacement; and heating system improvements. The measures are done according to established technical specifications, cost-effectiveness tests, and relevant building codes.
The Department of Commerce contracts with a statewide network of 25 local agencies and five tribal organizations that do weatherization and consumer energy conservation education, and it manages four fund sources for the weatherization program.
