Kitchener-Wilmot Hydro issued a warning Friday about a new scam.

The utility says it has heard from some customers about people who have come to their door, claiming they're from hydro and they need to inspect their furnace. 

K-W Hydro warns it's a scam, as their employees do not go door-to-door.

They also don't inspect furnaces or home electrical systems. 

If you get one of these visits - or a suspicious call or email - you can call hydro to get clarification.
