MetroWest Residents Urged to Take Advantage of Mass Save

Nicholson Plumbing, Heating & Air Conditioning recommends MetroWest area residents look into the Mass Save program for help when updating their home’s efficiency

FRAMINGHAM, Mass. – Oct. 20, 2017 – Fall is the perfect time for homeowners in the MetroWest area to take stock of their home heating equipment before winter arrives, and Nicholson Plumbing, Heating & Air Conditioning recommends taking advantage of rebates that are available through Mass Save, Massachusetts’ energy assessment program. There are even zero percent financing programs available for qualifying homeowners.

Scheduling a free in-home assessment through Mass Save will help put a plan in place to improve the efficiency of the home’s HVAC, electrical and plumbing systems. During the assessment, a specialist will analyze the current energy usage of a home, create and provide a list of energy-saving recommendations, and even install many efficient products at no cost during the visit. These free products include low-flow showerheads, improved power strips, LED light bulbs, and faucet aerators.

“We want our neighbors to be aware that there is financial assistance available for those wanting to improve their home energy efficiency,” said Mike Nicholson, owner of Nicholson Plumbing, Heating, & Air Conditioning. “We can help homeowners find savings through Mass Save, and we will even help with the paperwork. This is the best time of year to identify systems that need updating, especially before winter hits, and applying for rebates can help reduce the impact on the family budget. Also, we want to encourage homeowners to get this done right away because there is no guarantee Mass Save will continue into 2018.”

Mass Save, an energy-conscious initiative in the Massachusetts area, can help get homes up to date with their heating equipment for the winter season by way of rebates for replacement, zero percent loans for energy efficient improvements, and even free in-home energy assessments. Sponsored by area natural gas and electric utilities as well as local energy efficiency service providers, Mass Save is a great place to start when considering home improvements.

The rebates offered by Mass Save are excellent methods of reducing the significant costs of whole-unit replacements. Some of these rebates include:

  • Natural gas furnaces and boilers: Up to $3,500
  • Propane furnaces and boilers: Up to $3,500
  • Oil furnaces and boilers: Up to $1,900
  • Electric heat pumps: Up to $1,000
  • Water heaters: Up to $800
  • Mini-split heat pumps: Up to $300 per unit

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. Making improvements of this magnitude will usually result in monthly energy savings that will more than pay for the improvements in time.

“These rebates can help many local residents acquire much-needed equipment replacements even if they may not otherwise have the means to pay for such updates,” Nicholson said. “Rebates, incentives and financing mean that taking advantage of Mass Save is an easy decision for homeowners in the MetroWest area.”

  • 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!
