What is Home Weatherization?
Weatherization is an important component to improving your home’s energy efficiency and comfort. The goal of weatherization improvement is to seal your home’s exterior shell (or “building envelope”), to keep your conditioned air inside and outdoor air outside. To assess what weatherization measures are necessary, 1st Choice Energy will take a whole home approach to assess where air sealing could stop heated or cooled air loss through gaps, cracks or missing insulation.
