2020 was the year we all had to do our best with nearly everything going virtual. Our education system, our health care system, and so many other industries were forced to embrace virtual solutions for the health and safety of those around us.
This recent year has also reminded homeowners about the state of their homes, and many have gone looking for places where they might be able to make improvements that can save them energy and money. The home energy assessment from Mass Energy Experts provides the information you need to improve the efficiency and comfort of your Massachusetts home, while also qualifying you for the lucrative rebates of the State Program.
For both your safety and ours, we have gone virtual with this home energy assessment. Here are six reasons the virtual home energy assessment is still an extremely important first step in keeping your home comfortable and efficient!
1. It's Safe!
We are able to complete this Energy Save virtual audit while maintaining safe distances, making it a contactless appointment. Your remote Mass Energy expert will complete a virtual tour and inform you of the opportunities your home has to save energy. Plus, depending on your needs, you will get a package of energy-saving products like LED bulbs and water-saving showerheads shipped to your doorstep!
2. It's Convenient
What could be more convenient than an appointment that doesn’t require you to leave your home, wear a mask, change out of your sweatpants, or brave any bad weather? Our team will schedule your assessment at a time that works for you, to virtually meet you in the place you are most comfortable—your home! Better yet - you can self-schedule your appointment now with a date and time that works best for you!
3. First Step to Energy Savings
Even if you don’t move forward with any of the recommended upgrades like insulation, air sealing, or heat pump installation, you will still save energy after your assessment. By using the energy-saving products that you will receive in your Mass Energy Experts package, you will stand to save energy in your home.
But consider the amount you could save when you combine all of these home improvements? With a home that is properly insulated and air sealed, your already energy-efficient heat pump won’t have to work nearly as hard to keep your home cozy warm in the winter and nice and cool through the summer. This will help you cut your energy consumption substantially and could lead to major savings.
4. Access Energy Save Rebate Savings
Perhaps the most important reason to partner with Mass Energy Experts for your virtual home energy assessment is access to the rebates and savings of the State Program. Common savings our customers qualify for include:
75% off insulation upgrades
Complimentary air sealing if needed
Heating & cooling equipment rebates
Rebates for washers & dryers
Continuing rewards for using smart thermostats
0% interest HEAT loans for energy efficiency improvements
5. It's Fun
We spend so much time in our homes (especially after this year), but how often do we really think about the science of what makes a home comfortable and efficient? After your virtual home energy assessment with one of our building science experts, you may never look at your home the same way again. Learning about how insulation and air sealing works and where the hidden cracks and gaps are in your home that you’ve never thought about can lead to a greater appreciation for your home and everything it does for you.
6. It won't Cost You a Thing
What more do you have to lose? You will never be charged a service fee for our Virtual Home Energy Assessment. Because we are an authorized home energy expert with the State Program, we can offer this Energy Save virtual home energy assessment at no cost to you. You only stand to gain from scheduling an assessment!
