Weatherization Job Aids
Weatherization job aids are step-by-step visual guides created to assist home energy professionals with effective, durable, and safe energy efficiency upgrades. Each guide includes an easy-to-use checklist that can be used to verify installation quality or support skill development of new staff members.
The job aids are organized by areas found in single-family and manufactured homes. These areas include but are not limited to attics, subspaces (e.g., basements or crawlspaces), and the main floors within the home.
