Free energy efficient products and installation
At absolutely no cost to you, one of our qualified Efficiency Partners will install energy efficient products in your home. Whether you rent the space or own, we can help you save. 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 for mini split heat pumps.
Please note that some products may not be suitable for installation in your home. Ask your installer for more details on product eligibility when booking your appointment.
We’ll change every inefficient bulb in your home. LED bulbs create a brighter space, are less expensive to run, are 90% more efficient than incandescent light bulbs and last longer than incandescent bulbs.
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.
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.
Smart thermostats learn your routine and adjust to create the perfect temperature. Users can save an average of 12% on heating and cooling. Available to single detached, semi-detached, and row-houses only that have reliable wireless internet. Primary heating system must be a mini-split heat pump. Ducted/central heat pumps are not eligible.
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.
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.
Draft-proofing your building prevents cool air from entering your home, and keeps warm air in. It’s a simple, cost effective way to lower your energy use and you save money.
