MINIMUM HOUSING CODE WEATHERIZATION ORDINANCE
Burlington, Vermont’s new Minimum Housing Code is designed to ensure that rental properties are also properly weatherized to keep tenants warm in the winter, cool in summer, and reduce costs, while helping the city achieve its net zero energy goals.
Vermont Home Energy Profile
Homebuyers consider many factors when shopping for a home: updated kitchens, attractive floor plans, curb appeal, and size. For buyers who place a high value on energy efficiency, it can be hard to find this information. The Vermont Home Energy Profile helps solve this challenge.
The Vermont Department of Public Service has created a free and simple tool to help find all the ways to decide where to make improvements that lower energy costs and appeal to energy-conscious buyers when the time comes to sell your home.

The best way to start on your path to Net Zero Energy is to understand how your home is currently using electricity. Usage Tracker can show you how your usage varies from month to month, day to day, and even in 15-minute increments so you can figure out the best way to start saving.
Heating and cooling costs are typically the largest energy-related expense in the home. Stay comfy and save money with these recommendations.
Weatherization for Tenants
Weatherization activities primarily focus on insulation and air sealing of the thermal envelope and can offer strong electricity and heating fuel savings.
