Home Weatherization Can Lower Utility Costs This Winter

Programs Available to Help Low-Income Families

(KANSAS CITY, Ks.) — It’s getting colder, which means many people will soon be turning up the thermostat– and that comes at a cost. In Kansas, there are resources to help low-income families save on energy costs.

Free weatherization services such as insulation, window repairs, and installation of LED light bulbs are available to families in need with the goal of helping them keep more money in their pockets. In Kansas, these services are offered through the East Central Kansas Economic Opportunity Corporation (ECKAN).

At no charge, income-eligible families can receive a comprehensive home energy audit, assessing their entire home. Certified energy auditors will search a home, inside and out, looking for inefficiencies and safety concerns using advanced equipment and identify a customized account of areas for cost-effective improvements.

The improvements will be provided free of charge by a network of professional crews and contractors. Applications are accepted year-round. For more information and to find out if you qualify, Kansas residents can visit eckan.org or call 785-242-6413.

ECKAN has a goal of serving 282 homes with the help of grant funding.

The Kansas Weatherization Assistance Program helps low-income households cover the cost of heating, cooling, and energy efficiency improvements – free of charge. It’s funded by Department of Energy (DOE) and Low-Income Energy Assistance Program (LIEAP) and regulated by the Kansas Housing Resources Corporation.
