Sometimes it feels like Home Energy and the DOE Weatherization Assistance Program (WAP) grew up together, along with what was formerly known as ACI and is now the Home Performance Coalition (HPC) and some other energy efficiency advocates. The WAP program is celebrating four decades of air sealing, insulating, health home making and family supporting on National Weatherization Day on Sunday, October 30th.
That would make Home Energy WAP’s little brother or sister. We are proud to be part of a family that goes the extra mile to serve the low-income households in this country. Not only that, but WAP is responsible for the growth of its cousin, the home performance contractor community, as well as for innovations in diagnostics and retrofitting existing homes everywhere (such as the blower door—see above).
