Helping you save on energy while increasing home comfort
BCAP has weatherized more than 7,000 low-income homes in Berks County since 1976. Services are delivered to single-family homes, multi-family homes and mobile homes.
The Weatherization Program increases energy efficiency, resulting in energy savings on home heating and air conditioning costs. Increased comfort and improved health and safety are key benefits as well. This is accomplished by conducting energy audits, installing insulation and weather stripping, and replacing or repairing doors, windows and air sealing. Heating system cleaning and tune-ups are also performed.
Our weatherization staff provides energy education to individuals and families at several stages of the weatherization process. This information includes low-cost and no-cost measures that you can perform on your own to reduce consumption of electricity, gas, oil and water and save money as a result.
