Learn how you can save energy and money—and possibly have improvements made to your residence for free at our KPUB Community Weatherization Event on Saturday, June 3, 2023, 11 a.m.-1 p.m., at the Doyle Community Center.
The event is free to attend, and open to the public!
Team members from KPUB and the Alamo Area Council of Governments (AACOG) will be in attendance to discuss:
- Home energy-saving tips and materials
- AACOG’s free funding for energy-saving home improvements*
*must income qualify and meet eligibility criteria
KPUB will give away complimentary box fans for the first 50 attendees and sponsor a drawing for a FREE smart Nest thermostat.
AACOG’s weatherization program provides savings for the lifetime of your house by reducing energy bills and is 100% free for those that income qualify. The program can be available to both renters and homeowners.
Although AACOG’s WAP program does not address major home repairs, it can help lower the amount of energy used in a home with weatherization upgrades. The less energy it takes to heat or cool the house, the more money that is saved on utility bills.
Examples of some of the energy-saving weatherization upgrades may include attic, wall and/or floor insulation, installation of new gas water heaters, space heaters, HVAC, or window air conditioning units, replacement or repair of broken windows and weather-stripping and caulking for air leakage control.
