The Community Conservation Corps (CCC) provides free home weatherization to low income homeowners in the greater Greenville community. We partner with Habitat for Humanity of Greenville County to reduce energy consumption and promote the financial stability of homeowners through weatherization, energy conservation, and education. Furman students help to track program savings and volunteer on certain projects.
To ensure a positive and professional experience for our clients, the CCC hires experienced, certified home energy auditors to determine each home's needs. Expert contractors then perform all necessary services and provide all clients with the most relevant information for their household. Some of our services include new or additional insulation around water heaters and in attics and crawlspaces, weather stripping, air-sealing, crawl space vapor barriers, safety checks on combustion appliances, and more. We estimate that by providing these and other home weatherization services, we can help our clients save up to 35% on their home energy bills.
