If you think you might even remotely be in the market for a ductless heat pump / air conditioner system before next summer, the clock is ticking. Talk to us now so you can weigh your options. The more zones you need conditioned, the more savings you have at risk.

Rebate amounts were increased earlier this year, and the savings for our customers has been in the hundreds of thousands of dollars. Details are outlined further down. Act soon, as applications for rebates at 2016 levels must be submitted by December 31, 2016 to qualify! Then we’ll have 90 days to complete your installation.


Ductless is a perfect option for a large family room or open floor plan

These savings are just the beginning…

Since the rebate amounts were increased earlier this year, we’ve been swamped with installations on the North Shore, in Mission Hill, Beacon Hill, the North End, Cambridge and the Back Bay. Not only will these customers save money on installation, but ductless heating and cooling is up to 40% more efficient than traditional systems which will save them big on energy costs for years to come. 

See how these Reading, MA homeowners trimmed their $3000 heating oil bill to $0 in one season, and saved 60% on their overall energy costs.

Switching to ductless will save you money

Your energy bills will be lower and you will reduce your carbon footprint.

In addition to the best air conditioning you can possibly put in a home, one of the hidden incentives behind this program, and one of the main reasons they do these huge rebates on ductless systems, is the dramatic energy savings homeowners will see come the winter months.

Mitsubishi’s h2i heat pump inverter technology is a massive shift in heat pump capability and efficiency, especially for New England homeowners who got pummeled by this past winter. These Mitsubishi ductless systems will save you hundreds if not thousands of dollars just by supplementing your gas or oil heating system.

So, folks, take a deep breath and let’s talk about the right system for your home.

To qualify for rebates at the originally authorized January 2016 levels, equipment must be installed by December 31, 2016, and all rebate forms and required documentation (including dated invoices) must be postmarked or submitted online within 30 days of the equipment installation date.

Submissions not meeting these requirements will be fulfilled at the new rebate levels. Exceptions will be made for customers already authorized for a HEAT Loan based on January 2016 rebate levels.

National Grid is committed to serving as many customers as possible, and will continue to closely monitor the funding for this program in order to serve our customers and save energy.
