What is Weatherization and What are the Benefits?
Weatherization is the practice of protecting a building’s interior from the elements, and studies have shown that a properly weatherized home can save a homeowner on average $413.00 within the first year in energy consumption. Typically, every dollar that a homeowner spends on weatherization produces a return of $2.69 in energy savings. The U.S. Government has recognized the benefits of weatherization, and has recently incorporated weatherization materials and products into its energy efficiency tax credit programs.
