Weatherization

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 and interest-free financing.    

If you heat with any other fuel (e.g. electricity, oil, propane, and / or wood), CMLP will issue rebates for the following weatherization costs: 

Eligible Insulation MeasuresEligible Air-Sealing Measures
  • Attic

  • Cover for Whole House Fan
  • Ducts / Pipes
  • Floor / Basement / Crawl space
  • Walls
  • Air Sealing
  • Duct Sealing
  • Weather Stripping
  • Blower Door Test

Households may receive the following maximum weatherization rebate amounts each calendar year. Customers must apply for the rebate within 90 days of installation, as shown on the invoice/receipt date. Multiple applications can be submitted if the household has not yet reached its rebate cap that year. See details about qualifying income levels here.

CMLP recommends getting 3 quotes before you have any significant work done on your house.  We do not have a list of pre-screened weatherization contractors, but you can find some through the following avenues. You may use any contractor, whether identified through the avenues below or not, without affecting your rebate eligibility, 

  • Talk with friends & neighbors to see who they’ve worked with and recommend.
  • Look at insulation contractor ratings with the Better Business Bureau or through the public library’s Consumer’s Checkbook account (checkbook.org/library/Concord-Public-Library/login/) or via online ratings such as Yelp or Google.
  • Choose one from MassSave’s list of approved weatherization contractors: masssave.com/en/learn/find-a-contractor-iic/. You’ll need to put in multiple heating fuels to see the full list of options.
