Coming soon: cheaper, cleaner alternatives to heating and cooling your home or business!
The towns of Arlington and Winchester have been selected to participate in the next round of HeatSmart Mass, the latest community clean energy initiative supported by the state and our respective town governments.
HeatSmart Arlington-Winchester is a community-led effort promoting four clean heating and cooling technologies that can help our residents save money, conserve energy and be more comfortable year-round while also reducing greenhouse gas emissions. These technologies include:
Air Source Heat Pumps, Ground Source Heat Pumps, Solar Hot Water, and Modern Wood Heating
HeatSmart Arlington-Winchester will launch in April 2019 and run until the end of the year. Current, we are conducting a competitive vetting process to select quality installers for each of these technologies who will serve as our offical HeatSmart installers and offer discounted pricing and top-notch customer service to our residents and small businesses.
Questions? Want to get involved? Come meet us at one of our upcoming events or reach out to the coach from your town for more information: Arlington (HeatSmart@town.arlington.ma.us) and Winchester (HeatSmartWinchesterCoach@gmail.com).

What is clean heating and cooling?
Clean heating and cooling technologies use cleaner, renewable resources to provide heating and cooling to your home or business. Clean heating and cooling technologies can be lower-cost alternatives to fossil fuel-based heating while also offering additional home comfort benefits and reducing your carbon footprint.
We're in the process of developing comprehensive educational resource to help you understand what technology might be right for you. In the mean time, learn more about each technology being promoted by HeatSmart Arlington-Winchester through the MassCEC website.
HeatSmart Arlington-Winchester is supported by the Towns of Arlington and Winchester and is made possible through support from the Massachusetts Clean Energy Center and Department of Energy Resources. Learn more about the state's efforts to promote clean heating and cooling here.
