Residential Weatherization
  • BPA is collaborating with National Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL), U.S. Department of Energy (US DOE) Buildings Technology Office, and Ecotope to develop and demonstrate tools for analysis of energy use in residential buildings which are tailored for the Pacific Northwest. More information about the project is available on the program page.
Program Description
 
Weatherization refers to actions a homeowner can take to reduce the loss of conditioned air to the outside through convection and conduction (or the infiltration of heat/cold from the outside). Air Sealing helps ensure that fresh air comes into the home through intentional sources, and not through unintentional sources like gaps in the foundation, ducts, or building cavities. Insulation minimizes radiant loss of heat and cool directly through the outside shell of the home.

BPA provides support and incentives to utility programs for weatherization measures utilities provide to their customers.
