Landlords of 1-4 Unit Properties: Get a No-Cost Energy Assessment
Lower your energy and maintenance costs the easy way.
What customers are saying:
We had some problems with our furnace, so we called our plumber to look at it. He took one look at it and said, ‘Call Mass Save!’
I was extremely pleased with my energy assessment. The Energy Specialist was very knowledgeable and professional, and had a host of energy-saving suggestions, even though this is a relatively new house.
It really makes a lot of sense to spend a couple hours with an expert to talk about your heating system, your lighting, your water usage…whatever it may be. [Just] think about it, and take a few actions.
[Mass Save] did a very good job. They were respectful, cautious. They were good - they were very good.
Wish we had taken advantage of this long ago.
I was impressed from the time I was contacted, to the completion of the project.
The Sponsors of Mass Save® offer solutions that will improve the energy efficiency of your 1-4 unit rental property and help keep your tenants happy. Enjoy the benefits of lower maintenance needs and reduced energy use. And your tenants will enjoy a more comfortable home with lower energy bills.

- ENERGY STAR® LED light bulbs
