Some typical weatherization measures that may be done to your home include:
- Sidewall and attic insulation
- Infiltration work (caulking and weatherstripping around doors and windows and glass repair)
- Repair/Replacement of furnace/heating unit (Home-owned units only)
Northeast Nebraska Community Action Partnership, Inc. Weatherization Program uses contractors to install the materials. Northeast Nebraska Community Action Partnership, Inc. Weatherization Program will weatherize approximately 100 homes during the year.
