No-Cost Home Energy Assessments for Homeowners (1-4 Units)
It’s easy to save on monthly energy costs.
What customers are saying:
After learning about Mass Save I decided to schedule a Home Energy Assessment, recognizing that there is a lot of money that goes out of a home. As a first-time home buyer, being able to add efficiencies right away will save me a lot going forward.
As a first-time home buyer I was overwhelmed with so many purchases and responsibilities. Having this assessment informed me of ways to save energy and also saved me a ton of money.
As first-time home buyers, we had to make decisions about which home improvement projects to tackle first. Making our home more energy efficient came to the top of the list because of its long term benefits.
When we purchased [our home], our buyer’s agent said, ‘You ought to call Mass Save.’ So, we did, and really from the first phone call, from the first contact with them, they were just friendly and informative. They sounded like they really enjoyed what they were doing.
We've been recommending this to all our neighbors – they were very helpful in showing us what we needed to focus on, and they saved us quite a bit of money as well!
My [Energy Specialist] was amazing! She helped me understand everything. She was even there when the work was being done.
