How a Virtual Home Energy Assessment Helped One Framingham Home Family’s Drafty Home Become Good As New

July 13, 2021

As a long-time Massachusetts homeowner, Vance was no stranger to the chilly New England winters, but one thing had become clear over time: his Framingham home was not well-insulated, making the winter drafts and chilly temperatures even worse inside the house.


After the COVID-19 pandemic put his family’s plans to buy a new home on hold, they decided to make the best of their current situation and make some much-needed improvements to their existing home, starting with a no-cost home energy assessment.


During the pandemic, Mass Save® Sponsor Eversource began offering virtual home energy assessments to ensure that customers were still able to access money and energy-saving guidance and improvement opportunities while keeping everyone involved safe and healthy.


As a result of the virtual assessment, Vance and his family were able to make several upgrades to increase the efficiency and comfort of their home, all the while maximizing cost savings ahead of yet another chilly Massachusetts winter. These upgrades included:


  • Insulation installation throughout the home;
  • Installation of two high-efficiency mini-split heat pumps, accessed with 0% financing through the Mass Save HEAT Loan; and
  • Other no-cost energy saving products sent directly to his home.

In total, Vance and his family received over $12,000 in incentives from Eversource for these energy efficiency improvements, on top of the peace of mind that comes with knowing their home was that much more comfortable and ready to tackle each and every New England season.
