If you add up all the leaks, holes and gaps in your home’s building envelope, it would be the equivalent of having a window open every day of the year. Yikes! Consider weatherizing your home in order to save money and energy and to keep your home toasty. Weatherization focuses on finding the small leaks and holes in your home’s building envelope and sealing them. Watch this video below and learn about weatherizing and other energy-saving tips for fall and winter seasons.

A Message from the President
I believe that Cook County should be a world-class model of sustainability. We are working not only to boost sustainability practices throughout County government, but also to join forces with local governments, nonprofits and business, to accomplish more than we could separately in making each of Cook County’s communities sustainable. To further this work, I appointed Deborah Stone as the County’s first Chief Sustainability Officer, and as Director of the Department of Environmental Control. I also recognize that Cook County needs to share ideas and collaborate with a diverse group of community leaders and sustainability experts. In March 2012, I appointed the Cook County Sustainability Advisory Council to help lift our vision higher and give us access to best practices. You can meet the Council members and read more about their mission in the “Advisory Council” section of this website. Toni Preckwinkle,Cook County Board President
