Weatherize Grantham
 is an initiative from the Grantham Energy Committee to help Grantham residents save money and stay warm by weatherizing our homes. Learn the benefits and costs of weatherization, meet NHSaves’ staff and contractor team, and get the scoop on available rebates and low-interest financing.

Weatherizing means making physical home improvements—such as insulation and air sealing—to reduce energy costsimprove comfort, and resolve issues such as ice dams, moisture, mold, cold spots and drafts. Most (if not all) of the work will be in your basement and attic. 

HOW do I weatherize my home?

  1. Find out if you are eligible for NHSaves rebates, which can cover 50% of recommended weatherization improvements, up to $4,000 (eligibility based on fuel use per square foot).
  2. Hire a specialized contractor (assigned by NHSaves or chosen by you) who will perform an energy audit to assess your home’s current energy efficiency and identify the best energy saving opportunities for your home and budget.
  3. Review your energy audit report and decide on the best work scope for you.

How much will it COST?

Every home is different. The cost of weatherization typically ranges from under $5,000 to over $12,000 (before rebates), with average energy savings of 20-25%.  Alternatively, you might try some “do-it-yourself” energy efficiency improvements or invest in a deep energy retrofit to reduce energy use by 50% or more.
