Interested in FREE Home Upgrades to Save on Heating Bills?
HomeWarming helps Nova Scotians living on a low wage save money on heating bills and feel more comfortable at home. There’s no catch!HomeWarming offers no-charge energy assessments and home upgrades to income-qualified homeowners. If an efficiency audit discovers that upgrades will help reduce heating and power bills, they will be installed at no cost to the homeowner.A typical house loses 45% of its heat through the walls, floors and roof. Upgrades like improving insulation and draft-proofing can help keep a home warmer in the winter and cooler in the summer. And since heating and cooling make up around 60% of energy costs, reducing these bills can make other household expenses more manageable.
HomeWarming reduced Norman’s energy consumption by 37%. And Louizella is saving almost $400 a year in heating costs.
