Are You Paying Too Much for Home Energy?

The Town of North Haven, has partnered with PACE, to bring you HeatSmart North Haven. The program helps North Haven residents learn about the three steps to getting energy smart: 1) Improve your home’s energy efficiency by getting a Home Energy Solutions service from an Energize CT certified technician (just $75 or no-cost for income-eligible residents); 2) Insulate your home and make other improvements to the envelope of the home; and 3) Consider switching your heating and cooling source to an energy efficient heat pump.

Ready to Get HeatSmart?

If your home is more than 10 years old and you’ve never had a home energy Solutions (HES) service, then start by calling 1-877-WISE-USE.

 

Once the air leaks in your home have been sealed and it is properly insulated, you’re ready for the next step in energy improvements — switching to heat pumps – the most efficient heating and cooling technology. Click the button to get started.
