MILWAUKEE -- The Social Development Commission has more than 400 openings for qualified low-income homeowners to receive free weatherization services.

That can include insulation, air sealing, furnace repair or replacement and more.

Homeowners can save hundreds of dollars each year.

"By performing weatherization, we're able to reduce their energy usage, which is gonna reduce their energy costs, so it's kind of a win-win all the way around," Steve Schuettke, weatherization operations manager said.
