A strong winter wind can make a home a cold, drafty place, but a local organization is stepping in to help low-income families seal the cracks.
The Community Action Partnership Weatherization Team is on a mission to help low-income families be more energy efficient.
And with winter only weeks away, applying for the program can mean the difference between a hard winter and a warm one.
The first step towards getting assistance is to call the program and see if you qualify.
There are income and location restrictions.
After filling out an application, an inspector will come out and decide what needs to be done to get your house better protected from mother nature.
They can add insulation, replace doors and windows, add caulking, even replace furnaces.
The partnership will work on mobile homes, single family homes, and rentals.
There is a short waiting list, so program coordinators say now is a good time to call before the winter winds start to blow.
Statistics show one in ten houses in under-insulated, and fixing the problem could mean cutting your utility bills in half.
