Code of Conduct
All installers who participate in MassCEC's rebate programs are bound by MassCEC's Code of Conduct.
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.
Feel free to email us at email@example.com or call 617-315-9357. Please note that review and processing time for submitted applications is typically 2- to-4 weeks.
