What is Weatherize Ellsworth?
Weatherize Ellsworth is an initiative from the City of Ellsworth, the Ellsworth Green Committee, and the Natural Resources Council of Maine.
The initiative was created to provide information to homeowners on the benefits of home energy savings options, and on Efficiency Maine incentives that lower the costs of home energy savings projects. Weatherize Ellsworth simplifies the process for homeowners to decide if air sealing and/or insulation is right for them, because we provide this information in addition to helping connect you with a quality contractor.
By signing up to get energy audits, air sealing, or other energy efficiency work done on their homes through the Weatherize Ellsworth initiative, residents of Ellsworth can take advantage of rebates from Efficiency Maine while also getting additional cost savings by partaking in the group.
Who Can Participate?
All homeowners in the city of Ellsworth and adjacent towns are welcome to participate.
Do you have cold drafts in your home or maybe ice dams on your roof? Or has another winter come and gone and you’re wishing you didn’t spend quite so much on heating costs? Many houses in Maine were built before effective air sealing and insulation was common practice, thus presenting residents with less comfortable homes with significant heating cost burdens.
A basic home energy audit with an initial air sealing is the first step to helping increase the comfort of your home, while lowing your winter heating bills. By signing up to take these first steps through Weatherize Ellsworth, you can take advantage of additional cost savings.
