solar install
Installing rooftop solar panels at 26 Lombard.

Join HeatSmart’s first open house, set for Thursday, June 27, to experience solar hot water and air-source heat pump systems to heat and cool your home.

See what steps you can take to reduce your energy use, utility bills and carbon pollution and get the inside scoop from a resident who converted his condo into a net-zero living space thanks to these technologies.

Stop by 26 Lombard Road, Arlington, between 6 and 8 p.m., to see a solar hot water and air-source heat pump system in action. If you cannot attend this session, more are being set up.

Solar hot water

A solar hot water system can provide up to 90 percent of your home’s hot-water needs. Learn more about how you can heat your domestic hot water with the sun. Check out our installer, New England Solar Hot Water at

Air-source heat pumps

With warmer weather approaching, many people are installing ductless mini-splits to provide comfortable, conditioned air for their homes. But did you know that ductless mini-splits (also known as air-source heat pumps) provide heating even when it’s 0°F outside?

You can drastically reduce your fossil fuel use while making your home more comfortable year round! For more information, check out our installer, New England Ductless at

Financial incentives

Payback is rapid with great Mass Clean Energy Center incentives, a 30-percent federal tax credit, HeatSmart program discounts and Mass Save incentives to update and improve your home heating and cooling system during this time-limited campaign.

Now is a great time to transition to cleaner heating and cooling!
