Spring is the Season To Save on Heating and Cooling!

If you want to save money on heating and cooling equipment, right now is the time to act! Here are two great programs that you can take advantage of immediately!

Early Furnace/Boiler Replacement Programs

Once again, MassSave is offering excellent rebates on the installation of qualifying furnaces or boilers that replace old, working equipment! That’s right – MassSave will pay you between $750 and $4,000 to retire your hard-working-yet-inefficient furnaces and boilers. The incentives on boilers apply to new equipment with an AFUE efficiency rating of between 84% and 90%+. Incentives also apply to ECM-equipped furnaces rated at an efficiency of 86% or better for fuel oil, or 95% or better for propane or natural gas.

The incentives are available to both homeowners and non-homeowners of currently occupied properties. The incentives cannot be used to convert from one fuel type to another, and they are not available for new construction. Additionally, working boilers must have been in service for at least 30 years, and working furnaces must have been in service for at least 12 years.

To start the process, a qualified installer must conduct a site visit between April 1, 2015 and August 31, 2015 and the qualifying new equipment must be installed and invoiced on or before October 30, 2015.

Air Source Heat Pumps

Great news! The Massachusetts Clean Energy Center (Mass CEC) has extended the rebate period for qualifying air-source heat pumps. Rebates of between $750 and $3,750 are available until May 31, 2015. The rebate amount depends upon the type and size of heat pump you purchase and install.
Heat pumps offer a high-quality, cost-effective way to heat and cool a whole house, or a portion of a home. They’re often used to provide supplemental heat in areas with no ductwork, in additions, basements and attics.

With this program, you can combine the rebate you receive from the Mass CEC with other rebate programs offered through MassSave and CoolSmart. The program is a great way to maximize your savings on the purchase and installation of a heat pump. You also get the added benefits of lowered heating and cooling costs, and greater comfort throughout your home.
