The Weatherization Assistance Program (WAP) reduces energy costs for low-income families by increasing the energy efficiency of their homes, while ensuring health and safety. Each year through weatherization improvements and upgrades, families across South Texas save an average of $413 on their utility bills and reduce carbon dioxide emissions by one ton per weatherized household.

To reduce energy costs, the program installs energy conservation measures. Although the program does not address major home repairs, the program can help lower energy costs by enhancing the structure’s thermal boundary so that the house stays cooler in the summer and warmer in the winter. Energy saving measures may include installing insulation, air sealing, solar screens and appliance replacements to optimize energy efficiency. As appropriate, the program replaces faulty furnaces, stoves, and water heaters to ensure safety in the home. Households with elderly, disabled, and young children (ages 5 and under) receive priority for weatherization services.
