We had a great experience from start to finish! The installers were professional, courteous, prompt, efficient, as well as clearly knowledgeable and experienced. We appreciated how considerate they were of the fact they were in our home. They took time to answer any questions we had and for whatever explanations were needed. And we love having central AC!!

Frequently asked questions

What is the Mass Save program?

Mass Save is a program sponsored by several Massachusetts utilities and energy efficiency providers including Berkshire Gas Company, Cape Light Compact, Eversource, Liberty, National Grid, and Unitil. These sponsors work with the Massachusetts Department of Energy Resources to promote energy efficiency services in Massachusetts. Through the program, Massachusetts residents and businesses can receive a no-cost Mass Save home assessment, as well as incentives including new insulation rebates, energy-efficient appliance rebates, heating rebates, and more.

What are "zones"?

A zone is an are in your home, which is controlled by its own thermostat. A home can have anywhere from 1-5 zones based on size, layout, or additions. Zoned HVAC uses dampers in the ductwork to regulate and redirect air to specific areas of the home.

How do I choose the right size air conditioner for my home?

The best way to determine the correct air conditioner size for your home is to choose a reputable installer. At Tetra, we calculate your home’s cooling needs based on industry standards. These calculations take the climate and your home’s size, design, and construction into account. An air conditioner that’s too small for your home will struggle to cool your space. If your air conditioner is too large, it cools your home so quickly that it doesn’t have time to remove enough moisture from the air. This leaves your home feeling cold and clammy.

What is an Energy Star Rating?

ENERGY STAR helps easily identify high-quality, energy efficient products. To earn the ENERGY STAR, a product, like an air conditioner, must meet strict energy efficiency criteria set by the US Environmental Protection Agency or the US Department of Energy. Products with the ENERGY STAR logo are generally 15% more efficient than the minimum federal standards. ENERGY STAR products help you save on your monthly bills and help the planet by reducing energy usage.

What is “cooling load”?

Cooling load is the rate at which heat must be removed from your space to maintain a constant temperature and humidity. Your home’s cooling load depends on its size, construction, insulation, number of windows, and other factors. The cooling load will also determine the size and model air conditioner your home needs.
