Nothing feels worse than a house that gets drafty in the winter and hot and humid in the summer. That’s why quality insulation is essential in Boston, Massachusetts. The problem is, many area residents feel like they can’t afford it. That’s why our team at 5C Energy Inc. (formerly known as Affordable Building & Weatherization, Inc.) wants to share some options and unique incentives for getting affordable insulation. Keep reading to learn more. 

Quality Insulation Saves You Money

First, let’s explore how quality insulation saves you money in the long run. 

You know how your energy bills spike in the coldest and hottest months of the year? That is because your current insulation is letting too much outside air penetrate your property while simultaneously letting your inside air out. It’s a never-ending battle, and the outside elements are winning.

But with quality insulation from our team at 5C Energy Inc., you can swing the numbers back in your direction and begin to pile on the energy savings. Over time, you’ll save thousands on decreased utility bills.

All that is great, but it doesn’t solve the issue getting affordable insulation today. In the next section, we explain some incentives and rebates that can make new insulation a reality. 

Massachusetts Offers Innovative Energy-Saving Rebates and Benefits

Did you know that the state of Massachusetts (and Rhode Island) offers incentives and energy-saving rebates to people trying to reduce their energy usage? We want to share the details with you!

First, you need to schedule a no-cost Home Energy Assessment. This brief inspection determines if your property can benefit from new insulation or air sealing. You’ll be provided a report recommending upgrades and tips for better energy efficiency. You’ll also receive information regarding the incentives you qualify for. 

How Do I Know If I Qualify?

In the Boston, Massachusetts, area, it is easy to qualify. Here are some of the requirements:


      • Own a 1-4 unit home

      • Rent a 1-4 unit building

      • Be a landlord of a 1-4 unit property or multi-family buildings with 5 or more units

    Much of the eligibility is based on the results of the Home Energy Assessment. That is why it is imperative to schedule one as soon as possible. 

    A typical incentive deal could pay up to 75% of the costs of the project. Let’s look at a possible example. 

    Say the total cost of an insulation project is $4,000. The incentives will pay 75% of the total cost, equalling $3,000. That means you will only pay $1,000 for brand new insulation! Think about it: if the new insulation can save you $100 a month on utility costs, it pays for itself in 10 months.  

    And there are even more incentives. Some people are eligible for 0% financing. That means even if you don’t have the money to pay for the discounted insurance up front, you won’t be stuck with a loan with a hefty interest rate. In fact, many people pay no interest at all!

    Be a Part of Reducing Greenhouse Emissions for the Next Generation

    It’s never been easier to lower your energy costs and your greenhouse emissions. These latest incentives have made it easy for anyone to get affordable insulation, including owners, renters, and landlords. It’s time to do your part in saving the planet.
