What’s Included in an Energy Assessment? 

A typical energy assessment includes an inspection of a few different parts of your home, including its insulation, combustion appliances, windows, and doors. They are used to evaluate your home and provide a list of recommended upgrades but do not include any of the actual recommended upgrades. A typical energy assessment will cost anywhere from $100 to $500 or more depending on how comprehensive it is. 

A Mass Save Home Energy Assessment is different from a standard energy assessment. This service is available to many Massachusetts residents at no cost, and it includes the installation of energy-saving devices as well as a list of recommended upgrades. In addition to no-cost assessments, the Sponsors of Mass Save offer generous rebates to help you pay for these upgrades so you can improve your home’s energy efficiency for little to no cost. 

How to Prepare for a Mass Save Home Energy Assessment 

You don’t have to do much to prepare for your Home Energy Assessment! Just follow these guidelines: 

  • All key decision-makers in the home should be present 
  • At least one adult over the age of 18 must be present 
  • Expect the assessment to last for about two hours 

What’s Included in a Mass Save Home Energy Assessment?

Home Energy Assessment 

During a Mass Save Home Energy Assessment with Neeeco, one of our experienced Energy Specialists will assess your current energy usage either in-person or virtually. They will look at your insulation, windows, heating and cooling systems, water heater, and more to find out what uses the most energy in your home and what you can do to reduce your energy consumption. Your assessment will also include combustion safety testing of your natural gas, oil, or propane appliances to screen for carbon monoxide, drafts, and spillage. 

No-Cost Energy Saving Products (As Needed) 

While assessing your home, your Energy Specialist will look for ways to improve your home’s energy efficiency immediately and in the long term. In many cases, you can reduce energy consumption right away with fast and simple upgrades like installing a low-flow showerhead. 

Your assessment will include the installation of no-cost energy-saving products as needed, such as: 

  • Advanced power strips
  • Low-flow showerheads
  • Faucet aerators
  • Programmable thermostats or discounted wireless thermostats (installed at a second appointment)

Custom List of Recommendations 

Following your Mass Save home assessment, you’ll receive a personalized list of recommended energy-saving upgrades such as insulation upgrades, air sealing, heat pump installation, and window replacements. We will also help you develop a plan for making these upgrades using Mass Save rebates and incentives. 

Rebate & Incentive Eligibility Screening 

There are many rebates and incentives available to help you make the upgrades recommended during your Home Energy Assessment. We will determine eligibility and your custom home energy report will include all applicable rebates and incentives. These may include:

  • 75-100% off insulation improvements 
  • No-cost air sealing of drafty areas in your home 
  • Up to $10,000 in heat pump rebates
