Whole Home Electrification in Boston, MA

N.E.T.R., Inc. is your trusted provider for whole home electric services

Homes that still use fossil fuels are more than just an inconvenience – they’re a huge contributor to global carbon emissions. Upgrading your house to renewable electric energy is one way to help fight climate change and it has a lot of benefits for you, too. N.E.T.R., Inc. is a top provider of whole-home electrification in Boston and can help you get started.

What It Is

Electrification involves reducing your reliance on fossil fuels to power your home and replacing it with clean, renewably-sourced electricity. Not only does this cut your contribution to carbon emissions, it makes your home more sustainable and less expensive to run.

Did You Know?

Residential housing is responsible for 20% of all greenhouse gas emissions in America, according to the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences of the United States of America (PNAS). 

Is Whole-Home Electrification Right for You?

You should consider switching to renewable electric power if:

  • Your energy expenses are too high
  • You’re sick of buying wood or propane for your heating system
  • Your carbon monoxide alarms keep going off
  • You’re having trouble budgeting for unpredictable bills
  • You want to increase the resale value of your home
  • You want to build a smart home
  • Taking steps to fight global warming is important to you

How It Works 

N.E.T.R., Inc. has an easy, 4-step process to completely electrify your home:

Step 1: Switch Your Home Systems to Electric

First, we assess your home systems and determine if any need to be electrified. For example, if you have a gas furnace or stove, these can be replaced with an electric stove and ductless heat pump

Step 2: Upgrade Your Home Weatherization

Next, we want to stop your heating and cooling from escaping. This can involve updating your insulation, resealing your windows and doors, or other weatherization upgrades.

Step 3: Convert to Solar Power

Once all the systems in your house are using electric power, it’s time to convert them to solar. Depending on the location of your home, you may be able to tap into community solar power or have solar panels installed on your roof.

Step 4: Monitor Your Energy Usage

Finally, you’ll want to monitor your systems and track energy use. Most systems allow you to tap into metrics like your average consumption per day or cost per kWh using your computer or mobile device.

Top Benefits of Electrifying Your Home

Explore the advantages of whole-home electric:

  • Lower energy costs. Electric power and the appliances that use it are often much cheaper to run than fossil fueled systems. You can expect to pay much less in annual energy expenses when you swap your wood stove for a mini split or start using solar. 
  • Less dependent on grid power. As weather continues to become more volatile, municipal and state infrastructures may not be able to handle it. Power outages caused by storms will become even more commonplace, but you’ll be well-equipped if you’re not using as much – or any – grid electricity to power your home. 
  • Reduced carbon footprint. Massachusetts has set a goal to reduce carbon emissions at least 85% by 2050, if not net zero. When you upgrade your home to use solar-powered electricity, you play a big part in helping meet climate change goals. 
  • Cleaner home air. The type of energy you use to power and heat your home plays a significant role in your indoor air quality. Gas furnaces, wood stoves, and even central HVAC all have a hand in polluting the air inside your home. When you switch to all-electric systems, this becomes a problem of the past.
  • Better comfort. Advancements in technology have made most electric systems more efficient and all around better at getting a job done than fuel-powered appliances designed to do the same thing.
