Weatherization Program

The TRI-CAP Weatherization Program is designed to make the homes of low income families safe and energy efficient.  Clients must be at or below 200% of the Federal Poverty Level to qualify for services.  Our basic goal is to make homes energy efficient and correct safety issues with their gas appliances.  The program is funded by the  U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) through the Indiana Housing and Community Development Authority (IHCDA).  Both homeowners and renters are eligible. Homeowners interested in weatherization must first complete an Energy Assistance Application through any of our three county offices. Some of the services provided by TRI-CAP’s trained Weatherization professionals include:

  • Home energy audits and inspections
  • Client education
  • Attic, wall and foundation insulation
  • Air infiltration testing and sealing
  • Faulty water heater replacement
  • Faulty gas cooking stove replacement
  • Furnace safety checks and tune-ups
  • Furnace Replacements
  • Lead based paint inspections for targeted housing
  • Installation of energy saving light bulbs
