Middle Georgia Community Action Agency offers a weatherization program to aid families with housing and energy concerns, including issues such as energy conservation, home safety, home improvements, and emergency services.
The Weatherization housing program is intended to reduce heating and cooling costs for low-income families, particularly for the elderly, people with disabilities, and children, by improving the energy efficiency of their homes. Weatherization includes:
- home improvements and energy conservation measures costing an average of $6,500 per house in materials and labor costs.
- installation of attic insulation, broken window repair, air sealing using caulk, water heater replacement and/or wrap, the replacement of light bulbs with more efficient varieties, and more.
- health and safety surveys.
