Educate the Homeowner
Believe it or not, if a home is leaking air - even the tiniest amount – it can affect the energy use and can cause an increase on a utility bills. If too much unwanted air enters the home during colder/windier days (also known as air leakage), the home will be constantly battling the temperatures and turning up the heat to make up the difference. During warmer days, not enough air may enter and it can have an effect on the air quality in a home, not to mention raising the inside temperature and battling the air conditioner.

We had just moved to our new home and really needed to shore up the heating system, figure out how we could afford new windows (they were original), and find out why our heat never stayed in the house. We worked with MassSave and EFI to assess our home, qualify for, and fulfill a heat loan. We were up and running with a new heating system, with a zero interest heat loan in about a week! This couldn't have been easier, and, to be honest, more needed. Thank you EFI and MassSave!Ryan D, Mass Save Marketplace Customer
