The State and Federal government, through the Department of Energy and Department of Health and Human Services and the County of York through the York County Planning Commission provides this program to help people who have a limited income so that they can lower their fuel bills, save energy, and have more comfortable homes in the process.

The Weatherization Program has offered these services since 1972 and more than 10,000 families have benefited from taking part in the program. Homes that have been previously served are not eligible for reservice.

Both homeowners and renters are eligible to apply for the services. Renters need to have the consent of their landlord to participate. 

The work is done for those eligible free of charge.

Specially trained workers make specified repairs to your home so that it becomes more snug, secure, and cheaper to heat and cool.

Services include, but are not limited to, attic and basement insulation, hot water heater and pipe insulation, window and door weather stripping, caulking, broken glass replacement, and glazing.

No lien is filed against your home.

Also, as part of the Weatherization Program your furnace and hot water heater will be tested for its efficiency and safety. Inefficient or unsafe furnaces will be repaired or replaced. All work is done on an as-needed basis.

In addition, the program provides education on ways that you can use and save energy wisely.
