Home help now - before the fall

While Old Man Winter has at least one High Country foot out the door, the anticipation of sustained warmer weather reminds us of anything but weatherizing our homes for the cold. But now could be the best time to do that: Weatherization is rightly tackled before it's needed. 

Yet, with many Watauga County families living paycheck to paycheck, allocating resources for something not essential today can be a difficult or impossible decision -- and so the brutal combination of poor insulation or unsafe living conditions and steep cold weather heating costs continues.

WAMY Community Action breaks this cycle for hundreds of households in Watauga, Avery, Mitchell and Yancey counties through its weatherization assistance program. For those who are income eligible, this program can include projects such as insulation, air infiltration reduction, sealing HVAC ducts and repairing heating and cooling units. 

Now is the best time to apply for both weatherization needs and an outcome that includes a more healthy and secure living environment. For more information, visit http://www.wamycommunityaction.org or call (828) 264-2421 to apply for weatherization assistance.
