The Massachusetts Clean Energy Center (MassCEC) with the support of the Department of Energy Resources (DOER) today announced the launch of the $2.6 million Residential Clean Heating and Cooling program, which provides homeowners with rebates to install clean and cost-effective residential heating technologies, including high-efficiency air-source heat pumps, ground-source heat pumps and central pellet heating systems.
Heat pumps can provide cost-effective and energy-efficient heating and cooling for your home, offering a reliable alternative to traditional heating technologies. Heat pumps require electricity to operate, but an efficient heat pump can provide the same amount of heating for a third of electricity when compared to traditional electric heating.
Central pellet heating systems burn pellets much the same way a traditional boiler or furnace combusts fuel. These systems can often integrate into existing heating distribution systems and fulfill all of the heating needs of a home. These heating systems can often heat a home for a fraction of the cost of traditional fuels, such as oil, propane or electric heating, while reducing greenhouse gas emissions.
The Residential Clean Heating and Cooling program offers rebates for installing these technologies. To learn more about these technologies or to find an installer, visit the Residential Clean Heating and Cooling program page.
