We’re proud to be a heat pump installer working as part of the Mass Save Network, and we can use our affiliation with that program to help save you money. We know the savings that are available, so let’s go through some of the rebates and incentives and explain how they relate to our services.
AC and Heating System Rebates
First, let’s talk about heat pumps. We’ve been installing, maintaining, and fixing them for years, and we know what kinds of rebates and savings are available for every kind of heat pump on the market.
Let’s say you’re thinking about installing an air source heat pump
If you do, you may not know that you can get up to $10,000 in whole-home rebates for these kinds of pumps, which makes it a win-win decision across the board.
If your heating and AC needs are such that you’re planning on keeping your existing boiler or furnace to supplement a new heat pump system, you can also get partial rebates.
To get in on these possibilities, the first step is to call MassSave. You’ll need to have your home weatherized for the project, as that’s a prerequisite to be eligible for any rebates.
We can help you there, too. At 128, we have highly qualified teams that can help analyze the energy efficiency of all your home systems, and once you’re qualified we’ll install your new heat pump so that it can function as a standalone unit or work as an integrated part of your existing heating and cooling system.
Air to Water Heat Pumps
Another kind of heat pump we can install for you as part of the Mass Save rebate program is an air-to-water heat pump.
These kinds of pumps are designed to provide efficient heating through what’s called hydronic distribution, which means that heat is distributed across your existing baseboards, hydronic radiators, or radiant floors.
Rebates for these kinds of programs are administered according to income eligibility. They’re designated as Enhanced Residential rebates, so be sure to review the Mass Save requirements carefully if you’re interested in purchasing this kind of heat pump.
We also have extensive experience working with hydronic heat pumps, and we can help with the energy efficiency part, along with any retrofits or swaps you’ll need to use your air-to-water heat pumps.
In addition, we can get you on a service or maintenance plan, which will make sure your heat pump is always working at peak efficiency. And you can actually get an interest-free loan from Mass Save to finance the entire purchase if necessary.
Furnace and Boiler Installation
Now let’s talk about furnaces and boilers. Natural gas prices are rising, so if you’re in need of an upgrade or a complete replacement, you need to put energy efficiency at the top of your home to-do list. Fortunately, there are rebates available when it comes to furnaces, boilers and natural gas, too. You can get up to $1,000 back in rebates if you install a high-efficiency furnace, and that amount goes up tot $2,000 if you put in a new energy-efficient boiler.
Once again, at 128 we’re experts at performing this kind of installation. We’ve done it in thousands of homes throughout Massachusetts, so we’ve seen every possible issue that can come up.
You can also get the same kind of interest-free loan from Mass Save to finance this purchase, and the money will be well worth it. There are provisions in these programs that state that new systems must be replacing an existing residential system, be it electrical, natural gas, or oil water heating, so make sure you review these carefully.
We can help you with any issues that come up during replacement to help you stay within the guidelines and rules for these programs, which will help you save the maximum amount.
The end result of all of this is that you’ll actually like what you see when you get your heating bill. You’ll be saving money while your house stays warm and toasty, especially if you follow up by signing on for an ongoing maintenance and service plan with us.
Oil and Propane Installations
Now let’s talk about oil and propane. The last six months or so have given us a dramatic lesson in what can happen to oil prices when a distant event like the war in Ukraine destroys the balance of the world oil market and sends prices spiraling.
As for the possible rebates, the amounts involved are significant. You can get up to $500 for propane- or oil-based indirect heating installations, and up to $2,000 if you need to install a propane boiler.
On the furnace side, installing a propane furnace will set you up for up to $500 in rebates, and if you decide to install an oil furnace the rebates can be up to $500.
You can even get a $100 rebate or discount for a smart programmable thermostat, which will help you implement energy-efficient zonal heating.
We’re experts at all of these installations. We’ve worked with both propane and oil, and we know the differences involved in boilers and furnaces when it comes to what to buy and how to set up these systems.
You’ll love the energy efficiency, and we’ll make the installation smooth and seamless so that your busy schedule won’t be interrupted. It’s a great way to upgrade your home and your lifestyle, and our HVAC techs and plumbers will do everything they can to maximize your savings.
You can top off the benefits you’ll get by getting on one of our maintenance and service plans. Those will keep your furnace or boiler in top running condition, and the interest-free loans you can get to finance the purchase will help save you even more money.
