weatherization assistance program
Macomb Community Action's Weatherization Assistance Program performs the installation of energy efficient items to conserve energy in Macomb County homes. Weatherization improvements reduce energy use and can save an average of 30 percent on heat/utility bills. A home energy audit determines which items will be installed.
Energy saving services may include:
- Wall insulation
- Attic insulation and ventilation
- Floor/foundation insulation
- Air leakage reduction
- Furnace repair or replacement
- Other energy saving measures
Macomb County families and individuals who are interested in having their home weatherized must meet eligibility guidelines:
