Enhanced Heating & Cooling Equipment Rebates

Lower your energy use and save on equipment costs.

Heating & Cooling accounts for over 60% of the average home energy use. You can significantly reduce your home's energy consumption, carbon footprint and energy costs by upgrading to energy efficient heating and cooling equipment. Combined with no-cost weatherization upgrades, your new heating and cooling equipment will provide comfort, convenience, and savings.

If you are looking for a convenient way to heat and cool your home, consider a heat pump. Heat pumps can efficiently heat your home in the winter and double as a cooling system in the summer while lowering greenhouse emissions.

The Sponsors of Mass Save® are making the purchase and installation of energy-efficient heat pumps affordable for Massachusetts residents.
