Feb 17, 2020 | Home Energy

We are all looking for ways to save money, especially when it comes to life’s most important investments—our home. If you are a resident of the Bay State, identifying energy saving opportunities just got a lot easier with the Mass Save® program.

Mass Save® facilitates a no-cost home energy assessment to the identify the home energy inefficiencies that are costing you money. Some homeowners may also be eligible to receive no-cost installations to improve energy usage and lower monthly costs.

O’Neal Plumbing & HVAC solutions is a trusted Mass Save® partner. We can take you through the process to help lower inefficiencies and improve your home’s value.

What is Mass Save®?

Eight local utilities comprise Mass Save®—Berkshire Gas, Blackstone Gas Company, Cape Light Compact, Columbia Gas, Eversource, Liberty Utilities, National Grid and Unitil.

These sponsors work in partnership with the Massachusetts Department of Energy Resources to provide energy saving programs and services, such as no-cost home energy assessments.

The best part is that you pay nothing at the point of service. Why? Your monthly utility bill already contains an itemization for this program! This means you can count on a no-cost home energy assessment to help you save.

What is a home energy assessment?

Do you live in a one-to-four-unit home in Massachusetts? If so, a Mass Save® energy sponsor can assess the energy efficiency of your home. Please note that during the inspection, there must be a key decision maker available, who is over the age of 18.

The assessment takes about two hours and is performed by an Energy Specialist.

Here is what is offered:

  • A customized list of energy-saving recommendations for your home.
  • A Specialist-developed plan to improve your home’s energy efficiency. You will also be given resources to help you explore rebates and incentives, should you qualify.

After you have reviewed your home’s unique energy plan with a Specialist, you will have a better understanding of how to improve your home’s energy usage and thereby lower your monthly expenses.

Have deeper questions about how your home is using energy? Check out these other services:

  • Combustion safety testing. A carbon monoxide screen of your oil, natural gas, and propane appliances. We will also measure spillage and drafts.
  • Infrared testing. When appropriate, a Specialist will measure your home’s surface temperatures to determine whether additional insulation is needed.
  • Targeted air sealing. No cost sealing of air leaks that can make your home drafty.
