The Heart of Your Home
Heating and cooling use about half of a home's energy, so it is the largest opportunity for reducing emissions and saving big money over time.
We recommend these four steps to all homeowners:
- Get a free energy audit This can show you big opportunities to save.
- Weatherize your home. Fill in the gaps where heat escapes and add insulation to minimize heat loss.
- Install programmable thermostats, an easy and inexpensive way to save up to 20% on your heating bills.
- Upgrade your heating system with an air-source heat pump or a highly efficient boiler or furnace. You can take advantage of interest-free loans and rebates.
