What You Need to Know About Mass Energy Assessments
For Massachusetts homeowners, the idea of getting a Mass energy assessment can be intimidating. Their homes are going to be evaluated for energy efficiency, and if they haven’t paid a lot of attention to this issue, there may be a fear factor associated with getting one.
Fortunately, there’s nothing intimidating or judgmental about getting a home energy assessment. Representatives from companies like Revise, Inc. are licensed contractors under the Mass Save® program, and they want to help you increase your energy efficiency and get the best possible products to do it.
There are a few things you need to know, though, so let’s take a deeper dive into the world of Mass energy assessments and get you up to speed.
The First Thing You Need to Know About a Mass Energy Assessment
The absolute first thing you need to know about a Mass energy assessment is that it’s free! Additionally, there’s no risk involved. As a homeowner, you can do whatever you want with the recommendations you receive as part of your home energy assessment.
You can ignore them completely and make no purchases, or you can take these recommendations and run with them to make great purchases and get tons of savings while becoming more energy efficient.
How Much Time Do Home Energy Assessments Take?
The next thing you need to know about a Mass energy assessment is how long it will take. We all lead busy lives, and some homeowners envision this process as a half-day or all day inspection that will take time they simply don’t have.
For most homeowners, a Mass energy assessment will take about 90 minutes. If you have a larger home or property, it may take slightly longer, but you can comfortably schedule the appointment knowing that will be your basic time window.
Access Issues in Your Home
If you’re going to take advantage of the benefits of a Mass energy assessment, there are a few things you should at least consider. Our home energy assessors are going to want access to areas of your home that you don’t typically use. Attics are a prime example of this.
You can help them out and help yourself in the process by giving them unfettered access. That means taking care of clutter so they can be thorough when they look around, since they may want to access parts of walls that may not be exposed.
When you give them this access, you’re actually helping yourself, too. The easier the inspection is for energy assessors, the more thorough they can be, so it’s worth your while to clear out the clutter, especially in areas you don’t typically use.
Our Professionalism is Paramount in a Home Energy Assessment
It’s important to remember that professionalism is paramount when you’re dealing with a home energy assessor from Revise, Inc.
Whether you’re making the initial call to ask questions and set up an assessment or going through the inspection and the follow-up report, we want you to feel as comfortable as possible with the process as possible.
Get the Home Energy Benefits that are Available in Mass
The home energy efficiency assessment is the best way to help you get the most benefits for your situation. We’re not coming into your home trying to upsell you on expensive upgrades.
Our training process is extensive. Home energy assessors who work for Revise, Inc. are thoroughly educated and trained about every aspect of home energy efficiency, and they know what to look for in every area of your home.
They’re also trained to evaluate your situation according to your individual needs. That means making appropriate upgrade recommendations, explaining the costs and benefits, and recommending products and contractors to do the actual work that’s involved.
What You Need to Know About Mass Save®
All of this takes place under the Mass Save® program, so it’s important to know as much as possible about how it works.
Mass Save® is part of a national drive to make homes more energy efficient. The overall goal is to reduce our reliance on fossil fuels, help the environment and make sure we’re all “future proof” when it comes to home energy technology.
This program is also being conducted in parallel with the federal government programs that offer similar upgrades on products that improve home energy efficiency.
Mass Save® is Taking on the Home Energy Challenge
So how is Mass Save® doing this? By offering rebates and discounts, along with a comprehensive home energy assessment report that will tell you what to do to improve the energy efficiency of your home. There are some freebies that are part of the program as well, and our home energy assessors can walk you through those possibilities as well.
The Paperwork Part of the Home Energy Assessment Process
If you do choose to buy in and go for some or all of the home energy rebates and discounts that are available through Mass Save®, you should know that there is some paperwork involved in the process.
This is especially true if you’re getting a Mass Save® heat loan, which is a zero interest loan of up to $25,000 that you can use to make your home energy efficiency purchases.
There’s no reason to be concerned about any of this, though. Our home energy assessors can walk you through the paperwork, which will ensure that you don’t make any mistakes that might slow up the process.
