Through the federally-funded Weatherization Assistance Program (WAP) adminstered by the Virginia Department of Housing and Development (DHCD), CHP's weatherization services reduce energy costs for families by improving the energy efficiency of their homes, while also assessing and eliminating related health and safety issues. Our Energy Solutions team completes a site-specific energy audit of a home that includes blower-door-directed air leakage diagnostics, heating system safety and efficiency diagnostics, duct leakage diagnostics, and insulation needs. Following the energy audit, CHP's weatherization team performs repairs and improvements to home heating and cooling systems and provides for the installation of energy-saving measures in the house, such as improved insulation and air sealing.
CHP's weatherization services are for low-income families, particularly for households with elderly residents, individuals with disabilities, and families with children. Households are typically qualified based on income and recipients must be residents of the state of Virginia. Please contact CHP to see if you qualify.
