Home Energy Low-Income Program (HELP)

Low-income clients with a total household income of $35,000 or less, are eligible to have a HELP trades person complete comprehensive air-sealing (caulking and weatherstripping on windows and doors) for free of charge.

Other features of the HELP program include: 

  • installation of a programmable thermostat
  • a low-flow shower head
  • a voucher for a free furnace cleaning (up to $80 value) 
  • a quantity of compact fluorescent light bulbs

These are simple energy measures that you can take that can have a big impact in reducing the amount
of oil needed to heat your home and save you money on your home heating costs. The results will vary
depending on the current condition of your home – installing a programmable thermostat can save up
to $250; and sealing air leaks with caulking and weatherstripping on windows and doors can save as
much as $650.
