Department Goal

The goal of the Weatherization Department is to provide energy conservation measures including:  attic, wall, floor, and duct insulation, furnace repair or replacement, low flow showerheads, and air sealing.

Home Weatherization

This program offers weatherization to low-income family housing regardless if heating with electricity, oil, gas or wood.  This free program is available to renters and homeowners living in single-family houses, mobile homes and multi-family dwellings.  Some of the measures your home may qualify for:

  • Attic insulation and venting
  • Wall insulation
  • Floor or perimeter insulation and venting
  • Duct Insulation (for central heating)
  • Water heater wrap
  • Clock thermostat (for central heating)
  • Infiltration (weather-stripping, caulking, etc.)

Funding for these services comes from a variety of sources:  Bonneville Power Administration, Department of Commerce, Department of Energy and LIHEAP Weatherization Assistance Program.

  • Conservation Education
    • Education and use of energy-conserving home fixtures such as low-flow showerheads   
  • Energy Matchmaker Program   
    • Funds are used to lower energy consumption of low-income households and, as a result, make residential space heating more affordable.
    • This program, implemented in 1987, is designed to increase resources for low-income weatherization by leveraging local matching dollars.  We access the Energy Matchmaker funds by providing a dollar-for-dollar match.
    • Funds are provided through a contract with the Washington State Department of Commerce.
