HomeSealSaver Program

Belle River and area residents, bring the savings home. Receive up to $1,360 in discounts to upgrade your home’s air sealing, insulation, and central air conditioning system.

HomeSealSaver is a Save on Energy local initiative program, which means it is a program available in a targeted area of the province in which electricity constraints have been identified. This program is only available in Belle River and the surrounding area to help residents boost their home energy efficiency through air sealing, HVAC tune-ups or improvements, and insulation upgrades.

Simple improvements to a home’s energy performance – such as weather stripping and upgrading attic insulation – can save money on electricity bills and help keep your home warm in the winter and cool in the summer.

In addition, these upgrades can have a positive impact on the Belle River community. By becoming more energy efficient, homes can help lessen the strain on the local electrical grid, support its resiliency and reliability, and mitigate the risk of blackouts.

How it works

STEP 1:

Fill out the participant intake form online and indicate the offers you are interested in receiving.

STEP 2:

Your application will be assessed for eligibility. If you and your home are eligible, you will be contacted to schedule a preliminary home assessment.

STEP 3:

The home assessor will walk through your home, make observations and collect equipment data. They will provide:

  • A list of offers the home is eligible for
  • A list of program-approved contractors
  • A work order to start the process

STEP 4:

Once you have decided which upgrades you would like to move forward with, you can either:

  1. Ask the HomeSealSaver team for help getting quotes from program-approved contractors and assistance in selecting a contractor.
  2. Take the lead by getting quotes directly from program-approved contractors, then let the HomeSealSaver team know which contractor you have selected.

The eligible savings will be applied to the quote and appear as a discount.

STEP 5:

Book your installation within 30 business days of selecting your contractor, and they'll complete the work on your appointment date.
