After an energy assessment, weatherization (insulating & air-sealing your home) is the best first step to improving the comfort of your home and reducing your energy costs and carbon footprint.
If you heat fully or partially with natural gas, contact the state at www.MassSave.com or (800) 232-0672 about their insulation and air-sealing programs.
If you heat with any other fuel (e.g. electricity, oil, propane, and / or wood), CMLP will rebate 50% of eligible weatherization costs, capped at $1,000 / year / household. Download the 1 page rebate application form here. If you would like the rebate to be sent directly to your contractor, meaning lower out-of-pocket costs for you, an additional form is required: Customer Acknowledgement of Satisfaction form.
CMLP recommends getting 3 quotes for any significant work you have done on your house. We do not have a list of pre-screened weatherization contractors, but you can find some through the following avenues:
