A holistic approach to energy efficiency yields greater savings, comfort, and safety for residents and businesses.
Making one change to your building’s thermal shell can affect its other systems. Tighter air sealing, for example, may require more effective ventilation to avoid mold. Taking a holistic approach to weatherization lowers your energy bills and boosts comfort, in a safe and healthy way, for your building and its occupants. Available services include incentive-based programs, income-qualified services, and technical support for homeowners doing their own work.
