Since October, Newton Energy $avers has made great progress by completing over 900 Mass Save home energy assessments toward our 1,000-assessments goal.
Top 5 reasons to sign-up:
1. Free safety evaluation of heating and cooling systems.
2. Free check-up of insulation and air sealing.
3. Free LED bulbs to replace old inefficient bulbs.
4. Reimbursement of 75% of cost up to $2,000 for added insulation, from Mass Save.
5. Reduced energy use and reduced risk of ice dams by insulating attic.
