Weatherization

About The Program

Weatherization Assistance Program

WEATHERIZATION ASSISTANCE IS NOT A REHABILITATION PROGRAM AND DOES NOT ADDRESS THE APPEARANCE OF YOUR HOUSE.

We are Now Serving McLennan, Limestone, Hill, Freestone, Falls, Bosque, Navarro, Johnson and Ellis Counties.

The Weatherization Assistance Program performs minor repairs to your home to prevent air from escaping or entering the house. Weatherization measures strive to assist you to maintain a more comfortable temperature level in your home and save you energy dollars. Homes that need weatherization will typically have cracks, holes, and other places where air leaks in and out. Here is a list of the types of work that the weatherization program may address:

  • Repair or replace low energy efficient heaters
  • Repair or replace low energy efficient air conditioners
  • Install attic and/or wall insulation
  • Repair doors
  • Repair windows
  • Replace broken glass and glaze around loose panes in windows
  • Weather strip around doors and attic hatches
  • Patch holes in the walls where air is coming in or out of the house
  • Patch holes in floors and ceilings
  • Caulk around window and door frames
  • Wrap exposed water pipes

The weatherization program does not provide funds for painting your house, installing new carpet or vinyl flooring, or storm doors.

*How much assistance does the program provide?

EOAC is required to explain all the possible services provided by the Weatherization Assistance Program as part of its client education. EOAC has a limited amount of money that can be spent on any particular home. Therefore, the work done on each home will be different based on the homes condition, amount of energy used to heat and cool the residence and program guideline set by Texas Department of Housing and Community Affairs. The initial assessment of your home DOES NOT guarantee that you will be eligible for weatherization services.
