Best Practices

MassCEC’s program requirements are intended to ensure high-quality project designs and installations. We recommend double-checking the following to make sure the system meets program requirements and to minimize the delays associated with these common application errors:

  • You have included all documents on the application checklist.
  • Peak heat load on the application matches the Manual-J software output and is for the appropriate design city
  • The heating system’s configured capacity is less than 110% of the building’s Manual-J design load.
