  1. Attic insulation
  2. Repairing, replacing, and sealing ducts
  3. Sealing cracks and gaps in the walls and ceiling

    For Home Performance with Energy Star improvements and weatherization improvements, an Austin Energy participating contractor is required to conduct a no-cost energy assessment of your home. Mobile or manufactured homes are not eligible for Home Performance with Energy Star improvements. The weatherization assistance program requires homes be appraised at $300,000 or less, be under 2,500 square feet and are greater than 10 years old.
