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 is a combination boiler?

Also known as a combi boiler, these gas boilers combine a hot water tank and boiler into a single high-efficiency unit. Combi boilers provide your home with both hot water and central heating. A combi-boiler heats water directly from the water main, as you need it, so there’s no need for water storage tanks. Because these boilers heat water on demand, they are more energy efficient.

Can I convert my oil boiler to a gas boiler?

Yes it is possible to convert your oil boiler to a gas boiler. To make the switch to a gas boiler, you will need to work with a gas company to have gas lines and gas meters installed in your home. Once the new gas lines and meters are in place, InHome can connect the gas lines to your boiler at a small additional cost. Before you convert your oil boiler, you should weigh the conversion cost versus a new boiler cost. Boilers should be replaced after 15 or more years. If your oil boiler is at the end of its life, upgrading to a new energy-efficient gas boiler will be more cost effective and will save you more money in the long run.

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.

What is a “heat load”?

Heat load is the amount of heat energy your home needs in order to maintain the desired indoor temperature. Your home’s heat load depends on its size, construction, insulation, number of windows, and other factors. The heat load will also determine the size and model of boiler your home needs.
