What is a Mass Save® No-Cost Home Energy Assessment?
A Mass Save® No-Cost Home Energy Assessment, also known as a no-cost energy audit, is a service offered by the Mass Save energy efficiency program. It's designed to help homeowners and renters identify opportunities to improve their home's energy efficiency, reduce energy consumption, and lower utility bills.
The assessment is conducted by trained energy professionals and provides valuable insights into energy usage and potential areas for improvement within a residential property.
Key Features Of a Mass Save No-Cost Home Energy Assessment Include:
A qualified energy expert visits the home to assess its energy usage, insulation levels, air sealing, heating and cooling systems, lighting, appliances, and other factors that contribute to energy consumption.
During the assessment, the energy professional may use specialized tools such as infrared cameras and blower doors to identify air leaks, insulation gaps, and other sources of energy loss.
After the assessment, the homeowner receives a comprehensive report outlining the findings and recommendations for energy-saving improvements. This report may include prioritized recommendations, estimated cost savings, and information about available Mass Save® rebates and incentives.
Depending on the assessment findings, the program may provide certain energy-saving measures at no cost to the homeowner. These could include the installation of energy-efficient light bulbs, low-flow shower heads, programmable thermostats, and more.
Incentives and Rebates
The assessment may also inform the homeowner about potential incentives and rebates available for making energy-efficient upgrades, such as insulation improvements, heating system upgrades, or appliance replacements.
The energy professional may offer personalized advice on energy-saving practices, behavioral changes, and small adjustments that can contribute to lower energy bills.

Common Questions About Mass Save Incentives and Ductless Mini Split Systems
Mass Save® is an initiative sponsored by Massachusetts' natural gas and electric utilities and energy efficiency service providers, including Berkshire Gas Company, Cape Light Compact, Eversource, Liberty, National Grid, and Unitil.
The Mass Save Program is funded by the energy efficiency charge on all customers’ gas and electric bills. So by cashing in on these incentives you are getting back the cash you already were charged!
Typically, Mass Save rebates are processed in six weeks or less of receiving a completed application. However, incomplete applications, missing documentation, or a high volume of applications can prolong the process.
By allowing Home Mechanics to manage the Mass Save rebate for your new ductless mini split heat pump system, you can get immediate credit from your rebate.
If you choose to submit the rebate application yourself and have not received your rebate within the expected timeframe, you can contact the Mass Save Customer Service Center at 1-866-527-7283. They can provide an update and resolve issues that may delay processing.
After the installation of your new heat pump system, it can take six weeks before you receive your rebate from the Mass Save program. This means the homeowner needs to pay the full amount of the system weeks before they receive their rebate.
To help homeowners take advantage of Mass Save incentives, the program now allows homeowners to designate their rebate payments directly to their approved Mass Save contractor. This allows approved contractors to apply for the rebate on behalf of their customers, deduct the amount from the invoice, and receive their rebate in two to three weeks.
Home Mechanics is an approved contractor in the Mass Save Heat Pump Installer Network, allowing us to submit the rebate for you.
