It's gotten really cold here in Chicago, and as we all know colder weather brings higher energy bills. So if you've been holding off on weatherizing your home because of the cost, you're in luck &mdash the Chicago Aldermen from the 1st and 32nd Wards will are offering weatherization vouchers for residents to assist in their own winter home weatherization.
The $40 vouchers are good at most Home Depot locations in Chicago and can be used towards the purchase of the following items: programmable thermostats, insulation, caulk and furnace filters, and even bigger ticket items such as windows and doors. Visit the 1st Ward Office (2058 N. Western) or the 32nd Ward Office (2657 N. Clybourn) with proof of residency for more information.
Are your communities offering weatherization rebates or vouchers? Let us know in the comments!
