Multifamily Weatherization

Seattle rental property owners can receive subsidized weatherization services if the majority of their tenants meet income qualifications. These improvements can help save energy, lower heating and cooling costs, and provide long-term improvements to your building. Participating building owners must commit to keeping units affordable for at least three years.

Typical weatherization improvements include:

  • Attic, wall and crawl space insulation (including crawl space ground cover)
  • Combustion appliance safety
  • Ventilation & indoor air quality measures
  • Air sealing
  • Duct insulation
  • Pipe wrap and water heater blanket
  • In-unit or central heating and hot water systems
  • Additional weatherization measures as determined by energy conservation benefit

To see if your building might be a good fit for weatherization funding, please contact the Office of Housing's HomeWise Weatherization Program (information at right).
