Weatherization Assistance Program (WAP)

Weatherization Assistance Program (WAP)

Eligible Middlesex County households are visited by our professionally trained crews, who use advanced diagnostic equipment to perform computerized energy audits on residential homes, as well as health and safety tests. In the process, they maximize and determine the most appropriate cost–effective, efficiency measures for the homes. Households ultimately alleviate their heavy energy burden, and experience savings toward becoming self-sufficient.

Households receive the following WAP services, based on the specific assessments and health and safety tests conducted in the homes:

  • Repair, caulk, and weather-strip windows and doors
  • Wrap hot water tanks and pipes with insulation
  • Stop drafts by sealing areas of air infiltration
  • Install low flow showerheads and faucet aerators
  • Clean, tune, and make minor repairs to heating systems
  • Test heating units and appliances for combustion safety, carbon monoxide, and gas leaks
  • Assess moisture damage, check electrical system safety
  • Install smoke and carbon monoxide detectors
  • Make major repairs or replace heating and cooling systems
  • Insulate attics, walls, and floors
  • Replace light bulbs with high efficient CFLs

Provide instruction on simple techniques that may help save household energy bills
