Homeowners look to Mass Save for relief from rising home energy costs

BOSTON — Expect to pay more to stay warm this winter.

That’s the sobering message from experts as New England prepares for temperatures to plunge.

There may be no escape from expected price increases for natural gas, home heating oil, and electricity, but there are steps that homeowners can take now to reduce the pain of higher winter utility bills.

Mass Save is the utility sponsored program designed to help homeowners save money by making their homes more energy efficient.

Under the program, energy auditors visit the home and search for ways to help homeowners save money.

Many of the fixes carry no cost to homeowners.

For major upgrades, such as replacing faulty furnaces or air conditioning units, Mass Save offers zero percent financing and/or sizeable rebates.

Customers can also save money through Mass Save on window replacements or the addition of insulation.

Homeowners can request an energy saving audit every two years.
