Time to Think About Weatherizing Your Home

As residents start thinking about switching on the heat, it's also a good time to think about getting homes ready for the winter.

The Local Energy Alliance Program, LEAP, said weatherizing your home is about making sure it's properly insulated and that your windows and doors are completely sealed. By spending a little money in the beginning, you can save yourself more cash down the road on electricity bills.

Guy Caroselli, the Residential Energy Services Manager for LEAP, said, "When talking about air sealing and doing basic sealing of your house, the materials might cost a couple hundred dollars, but you're talking about paybacks usually three to six months often times. It's usually the most cost effective thing."

As a part of Charlottesville's 250th birthday, LEAP is providing $25 home energy reviews for the first 250 homes through the end of the year.
