Weatherization

Since 1983 Northfield Community LDC has helped thousands of Staten Island residents make their
homes and apartments safer and more energy efficient through our New York State Sponsored
Weatherization Assistance Program.

Weather2Home energy efficiency prevents wasted energy and wasted dollars—less leakage of
warm air and entry of cold air will lead to lower fuel and utility costs. Increased energy efficiency
enables homeowners and tenants to maintain comfort without compromising health and safety.

Northfield’s weatherization program is administered by the U.S. Department of Energy through the
New York State government with supplemental funding from the Low Income Home Energy
Assistance Program of the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services and private monies.
