What is a Home Energy Assessment?

Discover easy ways to reduce your energy costs.

A Home Energy Assessment from the Sponsors of Mass Save® can help you save on your monthly energy costs by making your 1-to-4 unit home more energy efficient, and it only takes about two hours. Here’s what you can expect from your assessment:

  • An Energy Specialist will assess your home’s current energy use and install energy-saving products at no cost.
  • You will receive a custom list of energy-saving recommendations.
  • The Specialist will help you develop a plan to make your home more energy efficient, including qualifying rebates and incentives.
  • During the assessment, all key decision-makers should be present. At least one person over 18 years of age must be present.

Your No-Cost Home Energy Assessment Will Include:

  • Installation of no-cost energy-saving products as needed, such as:
    • ENERGY STAR® certified LED light bulbs
    • Advanced power strips
    • Low-flow showerheads
    • Faucet aerators
    • Programmable thermostats or discounted wireless thermostats (installed at a second appointment)
  • Eligibility screening for Mass Save rebates and incentives
  • Infrared testing, if applicable, which measures surface temperatures using advanced cameras to see if you need additional insulation
  • Combustion safety testing of your natural gas, oil or propane appliances to screen for carbon monoxide, drafts, and spillage

Additional Offers Based on Your Assessment

Your custom home energy report will include all applicable rebates and incentives, such as:

  • No-cost targeted air sealing of leaks in drafty areas of your home
  • An instant incentive for 75 percent off* approved insulation improvements or based on your income, you may be eligible for an enhanced instant incentive for 90 percent or 100 percent off
