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 with natural gas, contact the state at www.MassSave.com or (800) 232-0672 about their rebate programs.
If you heat fully or partially with electricity, 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. NEW!: CMLP is now offering the same program for homes heated exclusively with oil or propane. Check back here soon for the application link.
CMLP does not have a list of pre-screened weatherization contractors, but you can find some (we recommend getting 3 quotes for any significant work you have done on your house) through the following avenues:
Talk with friends & neighbors to see who they’ve worked with and recommend.
