Central Kentucky Community Action’s (CKCAC) Weatherization Program is in full swing and performing services in our 8 county service area. The Weatherization Program finished out the 2018/2019 contract year with 37 completed homes receiving services. We have closed out both Technical Field and Compliance monitoring reports from KHC and received excellent reviews. The Weatherization Program received both DOE and LIHEAP contracts for the 2019/2020 year. CKCAC has 35 clients on the waiting list to receive services as of July 1st 2019. We are still fully staffed with an in-house crew and are still utilizing contractors to perform HVAC, electrical work, as well as, weatherization that we have to perform to the dwellings receiving services.

CKCAC has leveraged funds from utilities to expand the reach of the Weatherization Assistance Program. This year we are leveraging funding from DOE, LIHEAP, ATMOS, East Kentucky Power, Kentucky Utilities, and Louisville Gas& Electric.

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.
