The Weatherization Program (WX) is fully staffed and has 60 clients on the waiting list for weatherization services as of January 2023. The Weatherization Program is providing weatherization services to our 8-county area with 8 jobs completed, 16 walkaways, 1 cancellation, and 18 jobs in-progress. The Weatherization Program is fully staffed with an in-house crew, and we are utilizing contractors to perform HVAC and Electrical work that we must perform to the dwellings receiving services. We look forward to the future of the new contract year of CKCAC’s Weatherization Program to progress and better serve our 8-county service area.

Our goal with weatherization is to continue to reduce energy waste and assure the health and safety of each client we serve through testing consisting of; aliening air and thermal boundaries, pressure diagnostics, heating system diagnostics, indoor air quality, and base load energy consumption diagnostics.
