Simcoe County Housing Corporation upgrades and saves

By switching to high-efficiency natural gas systems—including a domestic hot water boiler—the housing corporation is saving up to 40 percent on natural gas consumption and improving comfort for the seniors, families and individuals they serve.

  • Up to 40 percent in energy savings.
  • GHG reductions.
  • Improved resident comfort.

“In addition to reducing operating costs, our new equipment purchases have also allowed us to reduce our carbon footprint, and reducing our carbon footprint is helping the county meet its long-term energy reduction targets.”
