I Heart My Home CT is a cost-free, one-stop shop to make home improvements for health, comfort, energy savings, and lower utility bills.

With her I Heart My Home energy coach, Mike Uhl, Crystal Blair no longer had to struggle with contractor issues, her HVAC being shut down by an inspector or the money pit of an electric system that nobody wanted to work on. “One electrician would disconnect everything,” Blair said, “they had to cut into walls that couldn’t be patched.” Uhl was with her every step of the way and counseled that if that was the case, it was better to change out the wall and insulate while it was open.

I Heart My Home helped make sure Blair qualified for comprehensive incentives so that her upgrades were paid – in full – through the HES-IE program. She’s one of the first HES-IE customers in Eversource territory to be included in their Heat Pump Pilot program. “HVAC was the most exciting part,” Blair explained, considering the installation didn’t require any out-of-pocket payment. “Even the guy installing it was surprised!”

Do you want your home to be more comfortable? Do you want more freedom from utility bills?

We stick with you every step of the way.

Here in New Haven, we’ve endured the record-breaking temperatures in the summer and unpredictable winters brought about by climate change. If you’re fortunate to live in a home that’s newer or that’s been updated, you likely feel comfortable inside year-round. But most New Haven residents live in older housing that lacks the air sealing, insulation, tight doors and windows, and efficient heating and air conditioning systems necessary to keep homes comfortable and healthy. They’re stuck wasting energy and paying higher utility bills.
