MetroWest Homeowners Encouraged to Utilize Rebates from Mass Save

Nicholson Plumbing, Heating & Air Conditioning advises homeowners to take advantage of Mass Save’s early replacement rebates before aging heating and cooling equipment fails

FRAMINGHAM, Mass. – March 27, 2018 – Knowing from experience that aging heating and cooling systems are bound to fail eventually, Nicholson Plumbing, Heating & Air Conditioning is recommending that MetroWest homeowners with aging and inefficient equipment take advantage of early replacement rebates that are available through Mass Save, Massachusetts’ energy assessment program.

The family-owned home service company installs modern, energy-efficient equipment and systems, and partnering with Mass Save helps them get homeowners’ aging, inefficient equipment replaced in a timely and cost-effective manner.

“Many homeowners wait until their heating and cooling systems fail to replace them, suffering massive expenses to do so,” said Mike Nicholson, owner of Nicholson Plumbing, Heating, & Air Conditioning. “We want all of our MetroWest neighbors to know that Mass Save can help get them newer, more efficient units before dealing with the inconvenience of forced replacement due to equipment failures. With tremendous savings through these rebates and zero percent financing available, we encourage homeowners to act soon and start saving on monthly energy bills now.”

Mass Save, an energy-conscious initiative in the Massachusetts area, also offers free in-home energy assessments that serve as a great starting point for improving the efficiency of your home prior to taking action with replacement rebates. During an assessment, a specialist will assess the overall energy usage in your home and prepare a custom list of energy-saving recommendations as well as a plan to further increase your home’s efficiency. The specialist will provide information on qualifying rebates and incentives and even install initial energy-saving products in the home during the visit at no cost.

The early heating and cooling equipment replacement rebates offered by Mass Save are designed to proactively help homeowners replace aging and inefficient systems before they fail.

Some of these rebates include:

  • Natural gas furnace with ECM blower: $1,000
  • Natural gas forced hot water boiler: $3,250
    • With indirect water heater replacement: Additional $400
    • With thermostat replacement: Additional $100
  • Central Air Conditioning: $750
  • Central Heat Pump: $1,000

In addition to these rebates, Mass Save’s HEAT Loan is a great way to bring an entire home up to date and stay financially responsible. The HEAT Loan offers zero percent financing for qualified energy efficiency improvement projects up to $25,000. Combining this opportunity with the savings made possible by the early replacement rebates, homeowners will save by avoiding repairs on aging units, enjoying lower monthly utility bills, and dodging costly equipment finance fees.

“It’s important for Massachusetts homeowners to know that equipment replacements are not always an unaffordable luxury,” Nicholson said. “The rebates, incentives and aggressive financing made possible by Mass Save, combined with the resulting monthly energy savings, allow us to help more MetroWest residents than ever save their hard-earned money while upgrading the efficiency and comfort of their homes.”

  • Francis from Nicholson Plumbing and Heating was excellent. He was here to evaluate HVAC in our home. He was very patient and answered all my questions. He is also polite and easy to communicate with him. He explained technical concepts to me in layperson terms!

  • Nicholson offered what is possibly the best customer service I have dealt with in a home repair situation.  I called them because I was looking to replace my very old furnace.  They came out to do an initial estimate, and then came back when I had some further questions about my options.  After installing the furnace, they ran into some problems with my air ducts.  This happened on a Friday, and the problem was fixed by Monday afternoon.  In addition to their excellent service, they did quality work at a fair price.  I would recommend them to anyone looking for an HVAC company in the Framingham area!

  • Recently used these guys because my HVAC unit AC wasn’t working (first hot day of summer).  Showed up on time, wore booties, fixed the unit.  During the visit we talked about how my unit was having problems in the winter – which was resulting in NSTAR service calls of maybe 3-4 times per season (I am on a service plan with them).   He was the first guy to tell me WHY the problem was happening, and HOW to fix it.  I find it strange that all of the NSTAR guys etc. no one took time to point out how to fix the source of the problem…Very professional, smart.  I would use them again, and plan to for the fix on my heating unit!
