Home Assistance Program
Keep comfortable all year long with the Home Assistance Program
The way you light, heat and power your home can impact your bills. Even the smallest of actions can produce postive results. With the Save on Energy HOME ASSISTANCE program, qualified Ontario homeowners, tenants and social and/or assisted housing providers can improve the energy efficiency of their homes.
The energy efficiency and comfort of your home – or, if you are a social housing provider, your tenants’ homes – could be significantly improved through the installation of:
- energy-saving light bulbs (LEDs)
- a power bar
- a low-flow showerhead (in homes with electric water heating)
- faucet aerators (in homes with electric water heating)
You may also be eligible for a new, energy-efficient refrigerator or other appliance, such as a window air conditioner. If you are in an electrically heated home you may also be eligible for a programmable thermostat, weatherstripping around your doors and windows and additional insulation in your attic or basement.
The program includes a detailed in-home energy assessment, professional installation of energy-saving measures and advice on steps that can be taken to save even more energy.
All conservation devices and products provided under the HOME ASSISTANCE program are directly installed in the home and are free of charge to participants.
The Home Assistance Program is offered through your local hydro company and may not be offered in all areas. Call your local hydro company for more information on the availability of the program, or find your local hydro company here.
