Weatherizing Older, Low-Income Homes | Atlantic Spray Systems, Inc.

Weatherization of older, low-income homes is a critical improvement that not only prolongs the life of the structure but helps the homeowner reduce energy costs. These residents often have fewer resources to make regular repairs and perform major maintenance on their properties and the homes deteriorate with age. When your priority is basic survival, it is easy to sacrifice the costs required to keep a home optimally energy efficient and safe.

Moisture issues, in particular, plague low-income housing. Weaknesses in the air seal allow condensation to creep in and promote the growth of mold which can be highly hazardous to residents’ health. This is particularly devastating in a population with limited access to health care. In response, many communities and organizations have set aside funds to improve the energy efficiency of low-income housing, and Atlantic Spray Systems, Inc. is often called upon to assist.

If your older home’s energy demands are draining your resources, or if you simply want to do your part to save fossil fuels by increasing efficiency, contact Atlantic Spray Systems, Inc. and ask about your weatherization options today.
