No-cost weatherization assistance for all Maryland residents from the Community Action Council of Howard County helps lower your heating and cooling bills and makes your home more comfortable, healthy, and safe. But what exactly is weatherization?
New insulation helps keep outdoor temperatures from entering your home. The average home saves an estimated 15% on heating and cooling bills by insulating and air sealing.*
Weatherization closes up small holes and cracks that allow air to enter and exit your home. Left untreated, these leaks create energy waste and indoor drafts.
If your heating or cooling system is old or broken, our weatherization services can help. We will tune-up and repair your equipment, or even replace it with a newer, more efficient model.
Water heating is about 20% of your home’s energy use.* In some homes, this number is higher because the heater isn’t working properly or is out of date. We can help by repairing or replacing it!
LED light bulbs use 75% less energy than older incandescent bulbs.* When we weatherize your home, we’ll look to replace any older bulbs with new ones that will save you money.
Weatherization isn’t just about saving energy; it’s also about creating a safer, healthier home. All homes that CAC weatherizes have new smoke and carbon monoxide detectors installed.
Thank you. Someone from CAC will be contacting you shortly.
This is a test.
Each service year, CAC is required to collect new information from returning clients requesting additional services. Even though you may have answered many of these questions in a prior form, your most recent information could be different. Information about household income, household members, and even home address, phone numbers and email change occasionally. To make sure we can process your request as quickly as possible, we ask that you complete a new Universal Application each service year. CAC’s service year starts on July 1st of each year.
