Keep reading to find out what’s changing with Mass Save window rebates and how you can qualify for savings!
What’s Changing: New Mass Save Window Rebates for 2024
The Sponsors of Mass Save offer a $75-per-window rebate to Massachusetts residents who replace their single-pane windows with qualifying energy efficient windows*. The rebate is staying the same for 2024, but more replacement window options will qualify. In the past, you had to install a triple-pane ENERGY STAR-certified window to be eligible for a Mass Save window rebate. Now, you can choose any window that’s on the ENERGY STAR® Most Efficient certified windows list.
How to Qualify for Mass Save Window Rebates in 2024
To qualify for Mass Save window rebates, the windows you replace must be verified by an Energy Specialist during a no-cost Mass Save Home Energy Assessment. These are the general steps you must take to be eligible for rebates:
- Have windows verified during a Home Energy Assessment
- Replace existing single-pane windows
- Install ENERGY STAR® Most Efficient certified windows
- Submit rebate form and documentation

More Ways to Save: Federal Tax Credit for Replacement Windows
The federal government offers a tax incentive for window installations which you can stack with Mass Save rebates to maximize your savings! Even if you don’t qualify for Mass Save window rebates, you may still be eligible for the federal window tax credit.
Energy Efficient Home Improvement Tax Credit for Replacement Windows
Many energy efficiency upgrades qualify for the Energy Efficient Home Improvement tax credit, including window replacements. The credit is worth 30% of your total eligible project costs, with an annual maximum of $600 for replacement windows. You claim the credit when you file your federal tax return for the year you installed your windows, reducing what you owe by up to $600.
Are New Windows Worth It?
Replacing your windows is a big project, and even with all the savings available, you may be wondering if it’s really worth it to replace your house windows. The answer is a resounding yes. Not only do ENERGY STAR windows save energy and money, but they can also make your home more comfortable.
Here’s why you should consider a window replacement for your home:
- Energy savings – A typical home can expect savings of $101 to $583 a year when replacing single-pane windows with ENERGY STAR® Most Efficient certified models.
- Comfort – New windows can reduce cold drafts and make your home a more comfortable place to live.
- Protection – High-efficiency windows block UV rays and can prevent sun damage to your floors, carpets, and furniture.
- Environmental impact – Energy efficient windows save energy, which reduces greenhouse gas emissions and shrinks your carbon footprint.
