CADC recently completed weatherization activities on an elderly couple’s home in Washita County. Most of the windows in the their home were in very poor condition and there were huge gaps around the rotten frame around a seriously inefficient window air conditioner. Due to an inoperable and poorly vented floor furnace, they were forced to use three unvented gas space heaters, two of which produced dangerous levels of carbon monoxide. CADC performed air sealing and reduced the air leakage of this home by more than half, installed wall and attic insulation, replaced many of the windows, repaired the floor furnace complete with all new venting, and installed a new high efficiency window air conditioner. After weatherization activities were complete - not only did they experiences much lower energy bills, but their quality of life was much improved.
