Weatherization Assistance Program (WAP) enables low-income families to permanently reduce their heating and cooling cost by making their homes more energy efficient. Weatherization promotes a “whole house approach” concept. Weatherization technologies include a wide range of energy efficiency measures for retrofitting homes. Service providers choose the best combination of measures for reducing total energy consumption in low-income housing. This is based on a comprehensive energy audit, which is performed on each home.
EmPower New York focuses on electric reduction measures, but also addresses shell and heating system measures that offer the best means to reduce the household energy burden. Services are delivered by a network of weatherization agencies and private contractors, all of whom are certified by BPI (Building Performance Institute). In addition to using a “whole-house” approach while installing energy-saving measures, contractors address health and safety issues as the need arises. Empower New York works closely with the WAP program to coordinate efforts and funding to low-income households.
Energy Services are available to households who do not meet the above criteria for any of the programs mentioned above. There is an established fee for performing a comprehensive audit and write up. Any of the work recommended through the auditing process may be contracted through ACAP and can be performed by either in house crew or by a qualified sub-contractor. Fee is based on a per job cost.
ACAP Energy Service staff is BPI (Building performance Institute) certified and the agency is BPI accredited as Home Performance Contractor. BPI contractors are trained in the most current building science and use state-of-the art equipment to diagnose your home. Trained professionals understand the whole house approach and can help guide you in your home improvement decisions to maximize your energy savings and ensure your family’s comfort and safety.
