TRAINING & ED

Let’s face it, living in the Midwest has it’s weather related challenges. It gets hot in the summer and cold in the winter and that can take a toll on our homes and our health. Our weatherization program is designed to help people prepare and maintain their homes (either owned or rented) for all types of weather. In addition, the program helps people reduce energy cost and usage.

  • Clean and repair gutters and downspouts regularly.

  • Make sure the ground slopes away from the house’s foundation so that water does not enter or collect around the foundation.

  • Keep air-conditioning drip pans clean and the drain lines unobstructed and flowing properly.

  • Keep indoor humidity reasonable, ideally between 30 and 50 percent.

  • If you see condensation or moisture collecting on windows, walls, or pipes—act quickly to dry the wet surface and reduce the indoor moisture level or eliminate the water source.

  • Vent appliances that produce moisture to the outside.

  • Use air conditioners and/or dehumidifiers when needed.
