The Masssave program offers Massachusetts residents rebates, savings and other incentives for making energy efficient improvements to their home. One service that they offer, at no cost to the homeowner, is a Home Energy Assessment. This service is done by an energy specialist who conducts a thorough evaluation of the energy being used in the home, from rooftop to basement. Once completed, you will receive an energy savings plan, developed by an expert, who will also explain what incentives are available to you based on what improvements need to be made. The 2 hour process will teach you how to reduce your energy costs, improve your home's performance and create a healthier living environment.
Based on the recommendations made by the energy specialist, a homeowner may qualify for specific discounts or savings on their home energy costs. Typically, suggestions are made to upgrade older appliances for High Efficiency appliances that use less energy, but produce the same results. The Masssave program claims that you could potentially save up to 50% on energy use all year with certain upgrades, or qualify for a 75% rebate (up to $2,000) by getting the energy efficient improvements recommended during your Home Energy Assessment.
This program is available for residences in Massachusetts ONLY with homes of 1-4 people. For more information, or to schedule a no cost energy assessment for your home, contact Masssave at 866-527-7283.
There are also other things that you can do to bring down your home's energy costs, that are simple and very low cost. Here are just a few:
- Switch to Compact Florescent Bulbs
- Install Programmable Thermostat's
- Upgrade to Energy Star labeled appliances
