Mass Save offers rebates to Concord households that currently heat with natural gas if they switch to heat pumps. Residential rebates are $10,000 - $15,000 for heat pumps used as a home's sole source of heating. Partial-home rebates for heat pumps that supplement an existing heating system are also available. Generous rebates for businesses switching from gas heating to heat pumps are offered as well. Go to Mass Save's website for more information.
CMLP offers similar rebates to Concord households that switch from oil, propane, electric resistance or ETS heating to heat pumps. Go to CMLP's website for more information.
CMLP will soon be offering heat pump rebates for businesses that are similar to Mass Save's. Check back for updates.
Step 2 - Request proposals from contractors on our Participating Contractor List (PCL) for a heat pump system that meets your needs. (Use of PCL Contractor is not required to receive coaching services or CMLP’s heat pump rebate.)
Step 3 - Optionally, contractor submits a design summary via a pre-approval form for an air-source heat pump or a ground source heat pump project to Abode Energy Management, which administers the Concord Clean Comfort program. This is important if a whole home heat pump rebate is desired. Abode will use the information submitted to make sure that the proposed system meets efficiency, equipment and sizing requirements for a whole home heat pump rebate.
Step 4 - Once approved, a new heat pump heating and cooling system is installed and inspected.
Step 5 - The rebate comes through, and you enjoy clean, efficient heating and cooling.
Heat pump systems are designed to meet the challenges of any building’s configuration, whether it contains wide-open spaces or lots of little rooms.
If parts of your home or business are not adequately heated or cooled by your existing system.
UPDATING YOUR SYSTEM
Heat pump technology can replace or augment your current oil, gas, propane or electric resistance heating system.
NO MORE HEAVY LIFTING
Heat pumps can replace your current central AC system or be added if you want to add air conditioning without those heavy window units.
REDUCING CARBON FOOTPRINT
Heat pumps will reduce your carbon footprint. Using CMLP's low-carbon electricity, they're more efficient than any fossil-fuel burning system could ever be.
ADDING TO YOUR HOME OR BUSINESS
Heat pumps can be an excellent choice if you are expanding your business or living space. Adding heat pumps can increase your property’s market value.
In addition to heat pump rebates for homes and businesses, CMLP offers rebates to residents for measures like duct sealing, which can be essential to a successful heat pump installation project.
