A single mom who shares a three-bedroom apartment with her 6-year-old daughter, Alicia lives in a building constructed in 1900. Like so many aging housing units, it is uncomfortably warm in the summer and cold in the winter. Making matters worse, Alicia's daughter suffers from asthma, a chronic condition exacerbated by extreme heat and cold. Alicia learned about GHHI's home intervention services from her landlord and discovered that she met U.S. Department of Energy eligibility requirements for a complete package of weatherization retrofits. Within a few weeks a GHHI crew fixed her air conditioner, insulated the attic and installed weather stripping, low-flow faucet aerators and a programmable thermostat. Now, Alicia reports, she and her daughter are comfortable on hot days and "barely have to turn on the heat in the winter"— which means decreased anxiety about triggering asthma attacks as well as real savings to her fixed monthly budget.
