This webinar describes weatherization as a practice and the U.S. Department of Energy’s Weatherization Assistance Program. Presenters will discuss the activities that are conducted when weatherizing a home, such as protecting a home’s interior from the elements (sunlight, rain, and wind) and modifying a building to reduce energy consumption and optimize energy efficiency. DOE’s Weatherization Assistance Program is a comprehensive whole-building approach to energy efficiency retrofits, with the mission of reducing the energy burden of low-income households while also ensuring their health and safety. These items are interrelated because in many cases, providing air sealing plus ventilation improves the air quality and health of the occupants inside the building. Weatherization Plus Health is a voluntary effort designed to take a comprehensive approach to coordinate resources for energy, health, and safety in low-income homes.
