Commercial HVAC Equipment

Cape Light Compact's Commercial HVAC program offers incentives on several types and sizes of commercial air conditioning and heat pump units, including VRF systems, ECM Pumps and Dual Enthalpy Economizers. These high-efficiency systems help you secure even greater energy savings, which you can learn more about here.

How to participate:
  1. Determine Your HVAC Needs

    Contact your HVAC contractor to determine the heating and cooling needs for your business.

  2. Find a Participating Distributor

    Click here to search our list of eligible distributors who can work with you and your contractor to identify the right kind of high-efficiency equipment for your business.

  3. Start Saving Energy

    By purchasing high-efficiency HVAC equipment you may benefit from the energy savings over the lifetime of that equipment.

OR

If you are interested in Small Commercial Heat Pumps, check out the incentives available for installing qualified high-efficiency central ducted, and ductless mini or multi-split heat pump systems that are less than 5.4 tons. Heat pump systems offer both heating and cooling in your business space. When using an integrated control, the heat pumps will complement your existing heating system in the winter and can reduce your overall heating costs, depending on your current heating fuel type.

1Actual tons are calculated based on AHRI cooling capacity divided by 12,000 BTUs. Incentive amount based on actual tons.
2Integrated controls are either approved control packages or dual fuel thermostats that switch between a heat pump and a central heating system.
3The Sponsors of Mass Save do not recommend fully replacing existing central heating systems with heat pump equipment. Customers that choose to remove their existing system may access the Energy Optimization incentive levels without the installation of an integrated control.
Please see Terms & Conditions on the application for full requirements. Cannot be combined with any other incentive for same equipment.
