What is Weatherization?
Often people confuse weatherization with winterization. The difference between them is time. Winterization projects are short-term and aim for temporary changes that have small benefits. Weatherization, on the other hand, involves long-term and permanent improvement of your home’s comfort and energy efficiency. Winterization projects only make sense if you are a short-term renter. If you plan to stay in your home or mobile home, it’s more effective to weatherize.
