Want to reduce the cost of heating? Boston homeowners can still take advantage of a number of programs designed to reduce the cost of making energy-efficient improvements around your home. Here are a few of the programs that can reduce the cost of purchasing and installing new heating equipment, and can also help you save money on operating costs throughout the year!
Early Boiler Replacement Program Boston homeowners still have a little time to take advantage of the Early Boiler Replacement Program offered by National Grid. If your home has a working boiler that is at least 30 years of age, you may qualify for a rebate of between $1,750 and $4,000, depending upon the type of boiler you have installed right now. Qualified homeowners must begin the boiler replacement process before September 30 to take advantage of these generous rebates. Installation of the new equipment must be completed by November 1.
Programmable Thermostats. You can save money on your heating and cooling bills simply by installing a programmable thermostat. Programmable thermostats can help you save as much as 10% on your heating and cooling costs throughout the year, and help maintain the comfort level of your home year-round. Right now, you can collect a $25 mail-in rebate on the purchase of one programmable thermostat, or $50 on the purchase of two programmable thermostats.
Residential High-Efficiency Heating Equipment Rebate Program Boston homeowners can collect rebates of between $25 and $1,500 on the purchase of high-efficiency home heating equipment, including programmable thermostats, Wi-Fi thermostats, warm-air furnaces, forced hot water boilers, integrated water heater/condensing boiler units, outdoor boiler reset controls, heat recovery ventilators and a variety of water heating equipment, including both tankless and conventional water heaters.

Heat Pump Water Heater Rebate Boston homeowners can take advantage of this rebate when they replace an existing electric water heater storage tank with a qualifying electric heat pump water heater, or install an electric heat pump water heater in new construction.
