The provincial government has put an end to door-to-door sales of energy products after receiving a flood of complaints.

As of Jan. 1, 2017, the province will prohibit unsolicited door-to-door sales of furnaces, air conditioners, natural gas and electricity contracts, water heaters, windows and energy audits.

The province said it received more than 1,000 complaints about energy-related door-to-door sales, many coming from seniors and families who felt pressured or mislead into purchasing a product on the spot.

Companies can still sell directly to Albertans through telephone and online sales, as well as kiosks.

Anyone with concerns about door-to-door energy sales can call Service Alberta’s consumer protection line at 1-877-427-4088 or visit servicealberta.ca to learn more about their rights.
