Air Source Heat Pump Assessment Program

Considering a heat pump for your home, but don’t know where to start? Schedule a heat pump assessment.

The NextZero Air Source Heat Pump Assessment Program provides Chicopee Electric Light (CEL) customers with free expert advice and assistance with choosing a system that is optimally suited for their home.

Through the Center for EcoTechnology (CET), MMWEC’s energy audit provider, customers of CEL can schedule a no-cost, no-obligation consultation with an independent heat pump expert to learn how the technology works, understand how heat pumps can reduce home heating costs, and receive guidance on using heat pumps for supplementary or whole-home heating. This assessment will ensure that the air source heat pump size and configuration is optimized for the customer’s home and heating and cooling goals, helping to avoid the risk of an oversized or undersized system and outsized bills.

If customers decide to purchase a heat pump after the heat pump assessment, they are eligible for heat pump rebates from CEL. 

Customers who are interested in the Air Source Heat Pump Assessment Program can go to CET’s website for more information or call (888) 333-7525 to schedule an assessment.
