In Ontario, winters can be especially chilly, which naturally leads to increased energy use. Enbridge Gas will be on-site at Daily Bread in the coming weeks to spread the word about the Home Winterproofing Program—a free program designed to help reduce energy use and costs.
The program offers eligible households energy-saving upgrades, such as insulation, draft proofing and a smart thermostat at absolutely no cost. Installation by a professional is included.

Making homes more comfortable and energy efficient:
The initiative is about more than free upgrades. It’s about making homes more comfortable and energy efficient, while helping to ease the financial burden of higher energy use, especially during the winter months. The money that is saved on energy use through the Home Winterproofing Program can be used towards other essential expenses.
To date, more than 47,000 Ontario households have participated in the Home Winterproofing Program, experiencing firsthand the difference it makes. “I noticed that my bills are much better,” program participant Rosemary says, “and the upstairs is definitely much warmer in winter and much cooler in the summer.”
As the winter season approaches, this program acts as a tool for those facing economic challenges. It reminds us that when organizations commit to making a positive impact, real change can happen. Enbridge Gas is not just winterizing homes, but supporting Ontarians—one household at a time.
