Weatherization improves self-reported health and saves families money. Families in homes that had been weatherized had fewer bad days of physical and mental health, were better able to pay their energy bills and afford prescriptions, and had higher-quality housing (e.g., reduced levels of mold, intrusion of outdoor noise and odors, more comfortable temperatures, etc.).
