Yes, and the contractors selected to provide air source heat pumps through the HeatSmart Northampton program will help customers receive all available subsidies and rebates.
Because cold climate air source heat pumps are highly energy efficient, installing a system makes you eligible for a rebate from MassSAVE – Massachusetts’ utility-supported energy efficiency program. Depending on the type and efficiency of heat pump you install, Mass Save offers rebates of up to $500 for heat pumps. Additional information on these rebates can be found here: https://www.masssave.com/en/saving/residential-rebates/electric-heating-and-cooling/.
Mass Save also offers a HEAT Loan for efficient technologies like heat pumps. Through the HEAT Loan program, you could qualify for a 0% interest loan of up to $25,000 over a term of up to 7 years, which you could use to finance your heat pump installation.

Because cold climate air source heat pumps are considered a clean heating and cooling technology, installing a system makes you eligible for a rebate from the Massachusetts Clean Energy Center (MassCEC) – Massachusetts’ renewable energy support agency. Rebates from the MassCEC range from $625 to $6,000 per system depending on system type and your income and family size.
