Weatherization assessments are provided to Cleco residential customers at no out-of-pocket costs unless additional measures not covered in the assessment are requested. The assessment, completed by a Cleco-approved contractor, may include diagnostic air and duct testing, along with:
- Duct Sealing - In houses with forced-air heating and cooling systems, ducts are used to distribute conditioned air throughout the house. In a typical house, however, about 20 to 30 percent of the air that moves through the duct system is lost due to leaks, holes, and poorly connected ducts.
- Air Infiltration - Air that leaks through your home’s envelope − the outer walls, windows, doors, and other openings − wastes a lot of energy. A well-sealed envelope can make a real difference on your utility bills.
- Ceiling Insulation - The attic is usually where you can find some of the largest opportunities to save energy in your home. By adding insulation in your attic, you can maintain the desired temperature throughout your home much easier
- LED bulbs installed in common areas of the home. In addition, if your home is eligible, you may qualify for low-flow faucet aerators and showerheads.
