If you’re in the market for a new heat pump installation in Massachusetts, don’t just go install whatever system you can find. You’ll want to take the time to check out all the systems that qualify for the rebates from the Mass Save program. More importantly, consider getting a HEAT loan to help pay for your new system—that way you’re not shelling out the cash upfront. Here’s what you need to know about choosing a heat pump and cashing in on the Mass Save program to help fund your purchase.
Step One: Schedule a Consultation and Estimate
During this estimate, you’ll learn about the heat pump systems that are available and which ones are suited for your home. If you’re looking for a loan, this is also when your tech will explain how the loans work. Essentially, people are eligible for up to $50,000 in financing for the installation of a new heat pump. Plus, that comes interest-free for seven entire years, giving you affordable payments without the fees or hassle.
After your consultation, or perhaps during it, you’ll move to the next step of choosing and installing the system.
Step Two: Choose and Install Your Heat Pump or Mini-Split System
This is another area where it can benefit you to lean on the technician that comes to give you an estimate for a heat pump system. They will help you explore the available heat pumps and determine what you need for your home. If you want to install an entire mini-split system and use it for heating and cooling, you can do that, as well.
Choose the system that suits your needs and delivers the comfortable climate that your home deserves.
Step Three: Collect Energy Savings
When you choose the top companies to work with for your new heat pump installation, they’ll also take care of all of the paperwork that is required for the Mass Save rebates. All that you have to do is turn on your new system and start enjoying the new, more temperate climate in your home. Plus, as you use the system over time, it will take less energy than your old HVAC unit, which means even more money saved in the long run.
The Sooner, the Better
Some people put off having to install a heat pump as long as they can. It’s understandable when you consider how expensive these systems can be. Of course, when you can capitalize on the Mass Save rebates and the HEAT loan, it could be the perfect time to upgrade for maximum savings.
Your home will have cleaner, less humid air and you will be able to create the perfect temperature zones throughout your house with a modernized mini-split or heat pump system. They’re more flexible and convenient, and far more efficient, than the standard ducted HVAC system that a lot of people are used to. The Mass Save initiative is sponsored by electric and natural gas utilities in the state, including Eversource, Liberty, Berkshire Gas Company, National Grid, Cape Light Compact, and Until.
