SPRINGFIELD, Mass. (WWLP) - It's almost that time to turn the heat on in your home, and if you're willing to invest a little, the state's utilities say they can save you a lot of cash this season.
Through the MassSave program homeowners can get up to 2-thousand dollars toward the cost of insulation improvements.
For the average single-family home it would leave about 6-hundred dollars for the homeowner to pay, money that can come back quickly through lower energy bills.
According to Mark Tajima of Energia in Holyoke, "It's 75 percent paid for by utilities and that will weatherize or insulate a single-family home in one year."
Andrew Baker of Shelburne Falls told 22News, "I've been renovating my house for 15 years and its 150 years old and we are going to be warm for the first time this winter thanks to MassSave."
This fall, WMECo is offering an additional 100 dollars if you sign a contract by the end of October.
