Lower your energy and maintenance costs the easy way.
Mass Save® offers 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.
If you own and live in an attached 2-4 unit condominium, and join with the other condo owners in your building, you may also be eligible for these solutions.
Your No-Cost Home Energy Assessment
The Home Energy Assessment is an on-site visit to identify energy efficiency opportunities. Performed by a qualified Mass Save Energy Specialist, you’ll get a custom energy report outlining energy efficiency recommendations, next steps, and rebates and incentives.

No-cost energy savings products installed during the assessment may include:
- ENERGY STAR® LED light bulbs
- Advanced power strips

- Faucet aerators
- Programmable thermostats or discounted wireless thermostats (installed at a second appointment)
Your assessment will tell you if you qualify for other rebates and incentives:
- No-cost air sealing of leaks in drafty areas of the property
- National Grid and Eversource customers may be eligible for an enhanced incentive of 90 percent off the cost of insulation, with no incentive cap, if all eligible units participate in a 1-4 unit building (or 75 percent off the cost of insulation per unit if only some units participate)
- Berkshire Gas, Blackstone Gas, Columbia Gas, Liberty Utilities, and Unitil customers may qualify for 90 percent off up to $3,000 toward recommended insulation improvements for each individual unit if all eligible units participate in a 1-4 unit building (or 75 percent off up to $2,000 per unit if only some units participate)

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.
