Weatherization

Free Energy Improvements for Qualified Households

Protection from the
Elements

 

The Weatherization Assistance Program provides free home energy upgrades to income-eligible homeowners and renters to help save energy and make sure your home is a healthy and safe place to live.

Weatherization works closely with its companion program, the Energy Assistance Program, to help permanently reduce the energy bills for low-income Minnesotans.

 

What's included?

If you qualify, a local Weatherization service provider may conduct a free home energy assessment to determine if cost-effective energy efficiency improvements can be completed in your home. Weatherization services could help decrease your annual energy costs by up to 30 percent. 

Potential energy upgrades include: 

  • Exterior wall and attic insulation
  • Air leakage reduction
  • Furnace, boiler, and water heater repair or replacement
  • Ideas to help you reduce your home’s energy use, such as using a programmable thermostat
