Electric Heating and Cooling Equipment

Lower your electric bills and make your home more comfortable, year round.

 

Central Air Conditioning and Heat Pumps

Mass Save® offers rebates up to $500 to residential electric customers for installing qualified high-efficiency central air conditioning systems or central heat pumps.

 

What’s a Central Heat Pump?

A central heat pump operates on the same principles as a central AC system, but is able to provide heating as well as cooling by using the difference between outdoor air temperatures and indoor air temperatures to cool and heat your home.

Mini-Split Heat Pumps

Mass Save offers rebates up to $300 per indoor unit to residential electric customers for installing qualified Mini-Split Heat Pumps.

 

What’s a Mini-Split Heat Pump?

Mini-split heat pumps are efficient HVAC systems that can produce cooling for the summer months and heating in the winter months. A mini-split system is composed of two components: an outdoor condensing unit and one or more indoor air handling units, connected by a conduit through your wall.

What You Should Know
  • Mini-split heat pumps can be installed by any MA-licensed HVAC contractor.
  • As with any home improvement, it is good practice to obtain quotes from multiple contractors.
  • Typical objectives of installing a mini-split heat pump can include:
    • Reducing the amount of heat supplied by oil, propane or electric resistance
    • Heating and cooling the whole house
    • Heating and cooling an individual room
  • Regardless of your objective, be clear about understanding what size unit is right for your space, and how your mini-split heat pump will perform in freezing temperatures.

 

How the Electric Heating & Cooling Rebate Program Works:

*Mass Save trains participating contractors in the installation procedures such as proper duct sealing, airflow measurements, and appropriate sizing for your living space to ensure equipment operates efficiently.
