Why Is Masters Touch a Home Improvement Contractor Talking About Mass Save and Being Energy Efficient?
We have assisted many of our customers in obtaining the information they need for this great program.
On every project we undertake we take a look at what we can do to improve the functionality of a home. We look at things like maximizing natural lighting to reduce electricity needs, installation of energy efficient doors and windows, proper insulation, and so much more. It’s all part of our Green builder approach and in instances where our customers can take advantage the HEAT loan program we assist them.
Let’s take replacement windows for example. If your windows are single panes of glass, i.e., putty falling out, old, drafty energy gluttons, then you are a candidate for the HEAT Loan program. We’ve had many customers call asking to replace a couple windows but end up replacing windows in several rooms or the whole house once we tell them all about the HEAT Loan program.
Since our company is built around offering comprehensive services to our customers, we can act as your contract for a whole host of energy efficient upgrades that qualify for the HEAT Loan program, Energy Star windows and doors, insulation, and even heating and cooling systems.
What Is The HEAT Loan All About
Currently, you can get a loan up to $25,000 or as little as $500 and take terms of two to seven years to pay it back and you can pre pay the loan also. You can also pre-qualify yourself for the loan.
There are several restrictions and details you should know, none that are deal breakers really. Check out the Mass Save website (very informative) atwww.masssave.com and click on ‘For Your Home’.

It was all a snap!
