In my last two posts, I talked about a couple of programs designed to help homeowners in Boston install air conditioning with the help of rebates and incentives that are now available. Cool Smart is another such program that can provide rebates on air conditioning systems of up to $500. The program also helps Boston homeowners find qualified installation personnel to install and repair air conditioning and gives tips for saving energy and improving the efficiency of your central air conditioning systems. For more information about the Cool Smart program, contact us at Boston Standard Plumbing at (617) 288-2911 or the Conservation services group at 1-800-473-1105.
Cool Smart is one of several programs designed to assist homeowners. For homeowners who are having difficulty paying electric bills in the summer (and heating bills in the winter), the Energy Bucks program can provide assistance. The Energy Bucks program is income dependent and can provide fuel subsidies, discounts on utility services like electricity and natural gas, and help pay for services that are designed to reduce your home’s energy consumption and improve the efficiency of your appliances, heating and cooling equipment. If you would like more information about the Energy Bucks program, or want to find out if you qualify for assistance, please call 1-866-537-7267.
If you’re considering building a home, your new home can be awarded an ENERGY STAR® designation if it meets certain energy-saving criteria. ENERGY STAR® rated homes contain insulation, high-performance windows, and energy-efficient heating and cooling equipment.
