Next Steps:

  1. To see if you’re eligible for an early heating or cooling equipment replacement rebate, contact Mass Save at 866-527-SAVE (7283) to schedule your no-cost Mass Save Home Energy Assessment or Site Visit prior to removing your old equipment and installing your new efficient equipment.
    • If you’re only interested in an early central A/C or central heat pump rebate, you may instead schedule an appointment with an Airflow and Charge Check (AC Check) Trained Contractor to verify eligibility. Please note: if you are planning to finance your replacement equipment with the HEAT Loan a Home Energy Assessment is required.

  2. If you’re eligible, be sure that the new equipment installed meets or exceeds the efficiency requirements listed above.

  3. Submit your completed rebate form and other required documentation by the submission deadline for your service provider. You should receive the rebate form from your Energy Specialist or AC Check Trained Contractor after they verify the age of the existing equipment. Rebates can be submitted by mail or online at
