CINCINNATI - A local nonprofit group that provides weatherization services to low-income and disabled people is seeking Tri-State residents who are in need of help preparing their homes for winter weather.
People Working Cooperatively provides energy conservation services – also known as weatherization -- that help residents stay warm in their homes and reduce their energy usage, lowering their utility bills.
Weatherization services include an energy audit, furnace cleaning and tuning, carbon monoxide check, and installation of weatherization materials when appropriate.
PWC has provided such services since the 1980s. An expert from PWC is available to share energy conservation tips for homeowners and renters.
Anyone interested in applying for PWC’s services should call (513) 351-7921.
The group provides weatherization services in 20 counties throughout Southwestern Ohio, Northern Kentucky and Indiana.
According to the Environmental Protection Agency, most homes can save at least 25 percent once homeowners obtain energy efficiency services.
Because Cincinnati has some of the oldest housing stock in the nation, many area homes have poor insulation, leaks in air ducts and cracks in walls and around windows and doors. PWC’s services can address these issues to conserve the homeowner’s energy consumption.
