Not so easy there Ma…
I don't personally know anyone who's used the program however it's totally legit and paid for through our Enbridge bills. This falls under the Demand Side Management Framework for natural gas distributors which regulates the overall spending on the program and the overall targeted beneficiaries.

They'll do a free blower test and check for air leakage and also assess the insulation levels in the home. Then they'll fix those deficiencies they find free of charge. The same management program also regulates the programs for the independent electricity system operators under the same framework so they may offer to hook-up the candidate up with one of IESO programs as well and that additionally could offer anything from LED lights and low flow shower heads to possibly a replacement for an elderly inefficient refrigerator or window air conditioner. The IESO program can alternatively offer insulation upgrades to folks who meet the other qualifiers (financial) but don't use natural gas, rather electricity instead and thus wouldn't qualify for the Winterproofing program.
