Weatherization – Defined

The activity of making a building (generally a residential structure) more energy efficient by reducing air infiltration, improving insulation, and taking other actions to reduce the energy consumption required to heat and/or cool the building. In practice, “weatherization programs” may also include other measures to reduce energy used for water heating, lighting, and other end uses.
