Weatherization Assistance Critical in Buffalo Weather

For several years, NHS of South Buffalo has been hard at work weatherizing thousands of homes in the Buffalo area. In the last couple of years, we’ve been one of the most productive agencies in the country in doing so. So with that in mind, we want to keep making the homes of our service area safe, warm and energy efficient!

The Weatherization Assistance Program is now partnered with NYSERDA’s EmPower program and the Green and Healthy Home Initiative to provide Buffalo residents with the best service we can provide. 
The weatherization program features an experienced team who can conduct an energy audit and weatherize your home, including weather-stripping and caulking of doors and windows; cleaning, testing, and repairs of heating systems; adding insulation to walls and ceilings; and minor repairs as needed. After weatherization, another inspection will follow to check quality and effectiveness.
The program helps to improve a home so that it stays cool in the summer and warm in the winter. Most of the homes in Buffalo are poorly insulated, and sealing them up can save homeowners hundreds of dollars on their utilities. The programs offered by NHS of South Buffalo are for both homeowners and tenants.
NHS of South Buffalo has provided weatherization assistance to more than 5,100 Buffalo families since 1999. They employ professional, experienced weatherization crews and provide highly rated support for clients. If you would like to begin the application process, please contact the Weatherization Assistance Program office at 716.837.0071 today.
Please watch our heating assessment video on our YouTube channel for a closer look at the services provided under the umbrella of weatherization.
