At absolutely no cost to you, one of our qualified Efficiency Partners will install energy efficient products in your home, whether you rent or own. Not only is the installation free, but so are the products we install—which is when the savings really begin. 

With your newly installed energy efficient products, you can save up to $240 a year. Efficiency Partners will visit your home to install products like LED lighting, faucet aerators, or smart thermostats depending on your home.

Free products may include:

We’ll change every inefficient bulb in your home. LEDs create a brighter home, are less expensive to run, are 90% more efficient than incandescent light bulbs and last longer.


Draft-proofing your home prevents cool air from entering your home, while keeping the warm air in. It’s a simple, cost effective way to lower your energy use and you save money.

Water-saving showerheads

With savings like this, you’ll definitely have something to sing about in the shower. Water-saving showerheads maintain water pressure while reducing the flow of hot water and save you $100 per year if your household takes two five-minute showers a day.

Faucet aerators

Enjoy savings and benefits with the turn of a tap. Faucet aerators screw on to faucets to reduce the flow of hot water, can reduce the sound of a noisy faucet, can filter more particles, and save you an average of  up to $20 per year.

Hot water tank wrap

Keep your hot water hot, straight from the source. Hot water tank wraps reduce heat loss from tank to tap and save you between 4–9% on your water heating bill–or $35+ each year

Smart thermostat

Smart thermostats learn your routine and adjust to create the perfect home temperature. Users can save an average of 12% on annual heating and cooling costs!

Not all homes are eligible to receive a free smart thermostat. Exceptions my apply.

Pipe Insulation

Keep your water warm from heater to tap. Water pipe wrap reduces heat loss and can help to keep water temperature raised while travelling through pipes.
