HeatSmart CoolSmart SomervilleIn order to move us towards our city's NetZero energy and emissions goals, a new program has just been launched by the city. HeatSmart/CoolSmart will offer heat pump systems for residents with this incentive program described here: http://www.somervillema.gov/departments/programs/heatsmartcoolsmart-somerville

It's like the Solarize campaign I ran as "coach" last year--but this time it's not as expensive a fix, and it doesn't matter what orientation or condition your roof is in.

There's a coach for this too--Molly--who will kick off the whole thing with an event on Aug 22. You can get a program overview and details there. http://www.somervillema.gov/events/2017/08/22/heatsmartcoolsmart-kick

There are big rebates and loans as part of this. So don't be daunted by the costs at first--have someone come and evaluate your situation and see if it's right for you.

We had two mini-split heads installed in our Cape (one on each floor) two years ago, and they have been excellent for summer cooling. We also put in a high-efficiency gas boiler so haven't used the heat pump for heating really; but if you currently have electric baseboards or oil heat it would save you money.
