MassSave CEC Program Deadlines Extended![/caption]The deadline to claim a rebate from MassCEC on residential air-source heat pumps has been extended to September 30, 2015. The rebates range in value from $750 to $3,750 based on the type and size of the system you purchase.
This is a great opportunity to add supplemental heating or cooling to one or more areas of your home. You can also use a heat pump as your primary heating and cooling system, or as an option for drying out damp spaces in your basement or lower level. In addition, heat pumps are very energy efficient, so you’ll save money over other cooling options like window air conditioners or space heaters.
Air-source heat pumps use outside air to heat and cool your home. Used as a heat source, a heat pump can reduce your electricity consumption by two-thirds, compared to other sources of electric heat. Unlike electric heaters, heat pumps can pull double-duty in the summer, cooling your home, too! Air-source heat pumps can be used as a centralized cooling system that serves the entire home, or they can be used as a split cooling system, which serves one room or area.
Air-source heat pumps are a great solution for that one room or area of your home that never seems to get enough heat or cool air from your primary heating and cooling systems. If you finished an attic or basement, or added rooms to your home, a heat pump can help you avoid the cost of resizing your furnace or central air conditioning unit while improving the energy efficiency and comfort of your home at the same time.
