Weatherization involves conducting an energy assessment to identify the most cost effective energy improvements that need to be performed on a dwelling, and then making the improvements at no cost to the household. Our program is designed to help those who meet federally-outlined income requirements in conserving energy and therefore enabling them to better cope with fuel cost increases and other household expenses.
HARRP, or Heating and Air Repair or Replacement Program, is a program that enables eligible households to have heating and air conditioning systems inspected, tuned, repaired, or replaced, when needed. Selection is based on a state-mandated priority system. Each year, we service a number of homes through this initiative.
- Home energy efficiency: testing and evaluation
- Carbon monoxide testing
- Air sealing
- Duct sealing
- Insulation of attic, walls and floors
- Evaluation, cleaning and tuning of heating system
- Energy education
- Heating appliance repair or replacement
How are we funded?
WAP is governed by various federal regulations designed to help manage and account for the resources provided by the US Department of Energy. WAP funding is derived from annual appropriations from Congress. Each year, the Senate and House Interior Appropriations committees decide how much funding to allocate to the program. Funding made possible by financial assistance administered by Office of the Governor through the NC Department of Environmental Quality.
