It Pays to Be Proactive: Get Rebates up to $3,250 on Early Heating and Cooling Equipment Replacement

August 21, 2018

The heating and cooling equipment in your home lose efficiency as they age. Even if your older air conditioner still works, for example, it’s probably using more energy to cool your home than it did when it was first installed, leading to higher energy bills.

With that in mind, it is important to replace your equipment before it causes your bills to spike and before it breaks down.

So when is it the right time to replace equipment?

The U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) estimates the life expectancy of home heating and cooling equipment as follows:

  • Furnaces: 15-30 years
  • Boilers: 15-30 years
  • Central A/C: 15-20 years

These estimates are ranges, of course, and they’re dependent on how closely you stick to a regular maintenance schedule (hopefully annually). The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and DOE recommend considering replacement of an air conditioner or heat pump at 10 years and furnace or boiler at 15 years, even if those systems are still functional.

Avoiding unnecessarily high energy bills and repair bills are just a few of the reasons to retire your older but still working heating and cooling equipment. The Sponsors of Mass Save have another.

Now when you choose an early replacement of your heating and cooling equipment, you may be eligible for rebates up to $3,250. In order to qualify, your existing equipment must be verified as functional.
