CAADC Weatherization Now Available to the Public and Local Businesses

Community Action Agency of Delaware County (CAADC) has a new opportunity available to home owners, landlords and business owners to help them save on energy costs. CAADC has been providing Weatherization services to eligible low‐income families for thirty (30) years. Now, thanks to a pilot‐project grant provided by the PA Department of Community and Economic Development (DCED), CAADC is making this service available to the public at a very affordable cost. A portion of the revenue will support the Agency’s social service programs which helps over 30,000 needy individuals each year. By sealing gaps in a property and insulating attics and roofs, Weatherization can save a household up to 30 – 35% during the winter and the summer. Potential improvements include attic insulation and venting, sidewall insulation, furnace repair or replacement, heating duct insulation, replacement of damaged windows and doors, and air sealing of windows, doors and other air gaps in a home. Edward T. Coleman, CEO, stated “We are excited to take our years of experience providing this service and make it available to the general public and local businesses. We will help them to save money while also generating funds to support our Agency.” Financing options are available including home loans as low as 1%. CAADC will help customers through the application process. Interested residents and businesses should call 610‐521‐8770 to schedule an initial Home Energy Audit or for more information. With the selection of the recommended energy saving measures, the fee for the Home Energy Audit (valued at $350) will be waived. CAADC’s Weatherization crews are certified by the State of Pennsylvania and the Environmental Protection Agency.
