Mass Save Program
Mass Save is a residential energy efficiency program sponsored by a consortium of major utilities in Massachusetts. Annual funding is aggregated through a “systems benefit charge” paid by residential electric and gas consumers, and this funding is used to subsidize energy efficiency work statewide. The Sponsors of Mass Save work closely with the Massachusetts Department of Energy Resources to provide a wide range of services, incentives, trainings, and information promoting energy efficiency that help residents and businesses manage energy use and related costs. The goal of Mass Save is to help create more energy efficient communities and enhance the value and comfort of our home. By taking a “whole-house” approach and starting with a home energy assessment, you can quickly identify opportunities to reduce energy waste for the long term. Whether you are making a few small changes, investing in major upgrades or equipment replacements, or building a new house, Mass Save has relevant incentives, services, and information.
The first step in making your home more comfortable and energy efficient is the home energy assessment. When you schedule a HB Home Energy Assessment, one of our BPI Certified Energy Specialist’s will come out to assess your home’s energy use and provide a custom list of energy-saving recommendations. Your HB will inspect your home for problem areas that, when addressed properly, will save you money and allow you to enjoy a more comfortable home. test your heating equipment, and work with you to develop a plan to make your home more efficient. What you should expect:
- The assessment takes roughly 2 hours depending on the size and complexity of your home.
- The Energy Specialist can work on his or her own but will check in with you and to work with you to develop an energy plan.
- The Energy Specialist will test your heating equipment to make sure that it’s operating efficiently and safely. Ambient carbon monoxide in a home can be a serious health and safety concern for you and your loved ones.
- Your will share his or her findings and discuss applicable incentives as well as your most direct path to the next level of efficiency, which is why it’s helpful if the key decision-makers are present. It allows us to schedule next steps.
