Making your home energy efficient is a great way to truly lower your individual environmental footprint. In addition, by lowering your electricity and heating costs, you’re able to rake in substantial savings on your utility bills.
Common ways you can reduce your home energy usage include:
Switching out incandescent and fluorescent bulbs to LED bulbs
Improving insulation to make your home more air-tight and free from drafts
Scheduling a no-cost home energy assessment with MassSave to get strategies to increase your home’s efficiency and learn about rebates and incentives opportunities
Setting up a consultation with a solar installation vendor to see if you can take advantage of solar power on your house to reduce your electricity bill and generate local renewable power
Heating and cooling your home with electric heat pumps. Two commonly used types are ground-source heat pumps (GSHP), and air-source heat pumps (ASHP). These systems are very sustainable as they do not require natural gas or heating oil to operate. MassSave may be able to offer incentives for installing heat pumps.
