CRT Now Offers Weatherization Assistance Program to CT Residents Statewide

HARTFORD, Conn., March 8, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- Another snow storm in New England is a reminder that the cost of heating your home each winter can be very expensive. Do you want to save money on your home heating costs next winter, while making your home more energy efficient throughout the year? Now is the time to sign up for the Community Renewal Team's (CRT) weatherization services, which helps income-eligible residents throughout Connecticut to make their homes more comfortable and energy efficient.

The completion of weatherization services helps people to reduce home energy costs. CRT's certified auditors visit homes to perform a Home Energy Assessment to determine energy saving measures for installation by pre-approved contractors. Typical services include: sealing air leaks and drafts, installing energy-saving light bulbs, and installing water-saving measures. The weatherization work may also include installation of insulation in attics and sidewalls, boiler/furnace replacement or repair, water heater assessment, as well as window repair or replacements and other services.

The Community Renewal Team (CRT) was awarded the statewide Weatherization Assistance Program (WAP) contract by the Connecticut Department of Energy and Environmental Protection (DEEP) and the supplemental statewide weatherization barrier removal contract to provide weatherization services to income-eligible residents throughout Connecticut.  

More information about how to apply for income-eligible weatherization assistance is available on CRT's website: http://www.crtct.org/en/need-help/energy-a-weatherization. Individuals may also call 860-560-5354 or email: weatherization@crtct.org.

Funding source:
A U.S. Department of Energy grant administered by the Connecticut Department of Energy and Environmental Protection funds CRT's Weatherization Assistance Program services, with additional federal funding and state administration supporting the removal of barriers to weatherization.

Other weatherization services are available statewide through utility-administered programs, funded in part by a charge on customer's energy bills. Visit www.EnergizeCT.com or call 1-877-WISE USE.

The Connecticut Department of Energy and Environmental Protection is an Affirmative Action/Equal Opportunity Employer that is committed to complying with the Americans with Disabilities Act. Please contact the DEEP at 860-418-5910 or deep.accommodations@ct.gov.
