Weatherization Assistance

The Weatherization Assistance Program (WAP) is offered through the Delaware Division of Climate, Coastal and Energy. It provides weatherization services to Delaware’s low-income households with the goal of reducing energy costs by increasing their homes’ energy efficiency, and making homes healthier, safer and more comfortable.

The process starts with a comprehensive energy audit conducted by a trained professional. The auditor will visit your home and diagnose its energy profile, and may prescribe the installation of one or more of the following measures:

  • Air sealing, caulking, glazing, weather-stripping, and crack patching
  • Replacement of broken glass
  • Attic, wall and floor insulation, and ventilation
  • Seal heating and cooling ducts
  • Insulation for hot water heaters and hot and cold water pipes
  • Other items recommended by the auditor

WAP in Delaware is administered by the Energy Coordinating Agency state-wide.  If you’re interested in participating, begin by viewing the Frequently Asked Questions. Then contact the Weatherization Assistance Program team for help or more program details.
