Masssave.com – Have You Done Your Free Energy Assessment

As a realtor I always suggest to a buyer that they do an energy assessment of their home as soon as possible after closing. 

According to their website MassSave (www.masssave.com), “Mass Save® is an initiative sponsored by Massachusetts’ gas and electric utilities and energy efficiency service providers, including Columbia Gas of Massachusetts, The Berkshire Gas Company, Cape Light Compact, National Grid, New England Gas Company, NSTAR, Unitil, and Western Massachusetts Electric Company. The Sponsors of Mass Save work closely with the Massachusetts Department of Energy Resources to provide a wide range of services, incentives, trainings, and information promoting energy efficiency that help residents and businesses manage energy use and related costs.”

Why not take advantage of an opportunity to identify areas to save energy and in many cases get at least some assistance in doing the work necessary to ultimately save energy costs.  The following comes directly from their website:

 

After you schedule an appointment, an Energy Specialist will visit to assess your home’s current energy use and provide a custom list of energy-saving recommendations for your home, and will help you develop a plan to make your home more efficient. What you should expect:

  • A Home Energy Assessment usually takes 1.5 to 2.5 hours
