Q: I need to replace my heating system. Are there still rebates or financing available?

A: Yes. Many of the new propane and heating oil equipment we install is subsidized by the Mass Save program. Right now, you may qualify for thousands of dollars in rebates, loans to cover replacements, and 0% financing for 7 years.

Q: Will these subsidies always be available?

A: It’s uncertain. Your Mass Save rebate opportunities may disappear as early as next year. Massachusetts’s Energy Efficiency Advisory Council (EEAC) has recommended eliminating all Mass Save equipment rebates and the no-interest HEAT loan for homeowners that use heating oil, propane and natural gas. The EEAC wants to redirect those funds to subsidize the cost of converting residential heating systems to electric heat pumps.

If you’ve been on the fence about upgrading your old heating system to a new high-efficiency propane or heating-oil model, don’t put it off any longer.
