Have you heard of the Home Weatherization Retrofit Program? It is a FREE service being offered through utility suppliers that gives qualified applicants access to insulation and draft proofing in their homes at NO CHARGE.
Improving your building envelope can save you up to 30% on your energy costs and can really improve the comfort of your home as well. In our own home, we undertook these two projects a couple of years ago and did indeed save 30%.
To qualify, applicants must be in benefit of a specified program or meet an income requirement as follows.
For Simcoe County, you can find more information here. The information about the program is not easily found for some other areas and a quick search on Google or a call to your local utility provider will help you find the information you need to access the program.
