RurAL CAP provides weatherization services to homes northern and western Alaska, Juneau and Anchorage. Weatherization is the division’s longest-standing program. The focus of weatherization is to increase the energy-efficiency, safety, comfort and life expectancy of the homes. A customized assessment is made of each home to determine what improvements will best meet these goals. RurAL CAP began managing the weatherization program for low and middle-income Anchorage residents in 2011.
Typical improvements include the caulking and sealing of windows and doors, adding insulation to walls, floors and ceilings, and improving the efficiency of heating systems. By making homes more energy-efficient, families spend less for heating, freeing up more household income for other basic necessities, expenditures which help support local economies.
