Tip of the Week!

  • Don’t forget to clean or replace your HRV filters. Dirty or clogged filters can lower ventilation efficiency.

  • Light up for less with LEDs.

    LEDs use up to 80% less energy, last up to 25 times longer, bulbs remain cool and they are more durable.


  • Switching to cold water can save you big dollars. About 80 to 90% of the energy used to wash your laundry is used to heat the water.
    Cost: $0
    Savings: Approximately $72 per year

  • Clean your dryer lint trap after each load; this will help decrease drying time and reduce the risk of fire.

  • Did you know that 20 to 35 % of a home’s total heat loss is through an uninsulated basement. Check out our Insulation Rebate Program to see how you can save up to $1,000 when you go to insulate.

  • All windows are not the same. Look for ENERGY STAR windows to save you money, cut down on outside noise levels, have less condensation, and protect from sun damage. Plus, they reduce your home’s energy consumption!
