Rebates

Get the Equipment you Want for Less

If you're in the market for new heating equipment or cooling equipment wouldn't it be great if you could get the equipment for less.  In Massachusetts there is a program call Mass Save that thanks to a small tax in your pay check you can qualify for rebates on heating and cooling equipment, insulation, light bulbs, and appliances.

Most heating and cooling equipment is expensive ranging anywhere from $2,000 to $8,000 or more depending on how many you buy. These are necessary purchases to stay warm in the winter and cool in the summer. So it is important that you consult your heating and cooling company to ensure the system you're getting meets the requirements so you get the maximum rebate. The rebates aren't just there to help out homeowners by reducing the price of the equipment. The rebates are there to help get homeowners to upgrade their existing older equipment to more energy efficient equipment. Newer heating and cooling equipment use less energy or fuel while providing a better level of comfort. Most older heating system's have an energy efficiency of 50-70% depending on the level of maintenance. Newer system's have an energy efficiency between 85-95% depending on the fuel type. The higher the energy efficiency the less fuel is used, the 

This also goes for insulation, light bulbs, and appliances, over time these products have gotten more energy efficient. There are new types of insulation that do a better job of keeping in the temperature you want. In some cases your older insulation could be doing little to nothing at all in terms of insulating your home.  LED bulbs provide a better level of light while requiring less than half of the wattage of there older counterparts. This is why when you buy new bulbs there is the wattage it uses and the equivalent older wattage. A common one is an older 60W bulb being replaced with a 13W bulb.

When looking at new heating and cooling equipment make sure to ask the company giving you a quote about rebates at the time of your first meeting.
