Home Heating and Cooling

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:

  1. Get a free energy audit This can show you big opportunities to save.
  2. Weatherize your home.  Fill in the gaps where heat escapes and add insulation to minimize heat loss.
  3. Install programmable thermostats, an easy and inexpensive way to save up to 20% on your heating bills.
  4. 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.
