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 leads to lower fuel and utility costs.   Increased energy efficiency means homeowners and tenants are able to maintain comfort without compromising health and safety.Weather1

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.
