If your home is more than 5 years old and you meet income guidelines, you can receive an in-home energy assessment through Vectren's Neighborhood Weatherization Program.
As part of the assessment, an energy efficiency advisor will perform a walkthrough to understand how your home and appliances use energy, and you may even receive energy-saving products on the spot! Upon completion of the assessment, the advisor will give you a personalized home energy report with an action plan for additional energy-saving efforts for your home.

Vectren Home Weatherization Program
Vectren has partnered with Miami Valley Community Action Partnership (MVCAP) to weatherize thousands of homes in the greater Dayton area through a program called Vectren Home Weatherization Program. To qualify for this home weatherization program, your annual household income cannot exceed 300% of the poverty guidelines (see chart at bottom).
Vectren Home Weatherization Program helps qualifying customers implement energy efficiency improvements to their homes at NO COST to the customers. The improvements, such as upgrading insulation or installing a new natural gas furnace, are made by a team of energy efficiency professionals from the Miami Valley Community Action Partnership. The result of a Vectren Home Weatherization Program energy overhaul is a home that's more comfortable, safe and energy efficient, which should lead to lower energy consumption and lower energy bills.
