We’ve made a lot of improvements to our home from an energy efficiency perspective, since we bought it a dozen years ago. We’ve insulated all the walls that we opened up (which is most of them), changed most of our lighting to LED and replaced most of our appliances, for example. But there are a few more details to take care of, for example, an old washer in the basement, one uninsulated wall and potentially some additional attic insulation to bring things back up to the ever-changing building code.
Today, I had the Mass Save Energy Assessment. Mass Save is a collaborative of Massachusetts’ natural gas and electric utilities and they arrange for these assessments to provide suggestions for energy efficiency. They also offer financing programs, which I’ll be taking advantage of for my air source heat pump, and big rebates on new equipment. Looks like I’ll be getting a new thermostat and a new washer, for example, because the rebates are too enticing.
