Lower your cost of new heating and cooling equipment with rebates and financing options.

Many energy providers, state governments, and equipment manufacturers are offering rebates to offset the costs of high-efficiency heating and cooling systems. These incentives help homeowners make energy-efficient upgrades to their homes so they can control their indoor temperatures more sustainably.

In general, the higher the efficiency of a new furnace, air conditioner, ductless system, or heat pump, the more you save.

When rebates from Mass Save® are combine with those from participating manufacturers, such as Carrier®, you can save up to one-fifth of the project cost, including installation.

Not only will your energy bills decrease significantly, but your overall year-round comfort will improve drastically.

Here are some current rebate incentives:
