December 3, 2008

The Weatherization Kit is a key component of the New York Power Authority’s “Weatherization Blitz” program to help lower-income residents, in Solvay, reduce their home heating costs by 10 to 15 percent this winter.  The Kits include caulk for doors and windows; weather-stripping and door sweeps; shrink-fit window kits; compact fluorescent bulbs and an LED nightlight fixture; a hot-water temperature gauge and refrigerator thermometer; and a low-flow showerhead and faucet aerators. The kits also include equipment for testing for radon gas, which comes from the natural decay in uranium that is found in nearly all soils.
