The City is working to help Malden residents reduce energy use, make their homes more comfortable, and save money on monthly energy costs.

The City has partnered with HomeWorks Energy, a Mass Save® partner, to make Malden homes more efficient, starting with a no-cost assessment.

During your assessment, a Home Energy Specialist will review your home’s energy performance, including its insulation levels. Once your assessment is complete, you’ll receive a personalized report that pinpoints ways you can save money and energy.

Benefits of an assessment include a no-cost custom home energy report, 100% off sealing air leaks in your home, 75-100% off new insulation, up to $15,000 in heat pump rebates, opportunities for 0% financing, and no-cost energy-saving items such as programmable thermostats and water-saving devices.

Join your neighbors and schedule your assessment now! Together, we can make Malden sustainable and resilient, while enjoying the benefits of energy efficiency in our homes.

"I urge you to schedule a Mass Save energy assessment at your earliest convenience. Mass Save upgrades are one of the fastest and most impactful ways to reduce your energy usage."

What to Expect from a Home Energy Assessment

We’ll work with your utility provider to get approval for the Home Energy Assessment. If we need more information from you for the approval, we’ll call you within 24 hours.


Your Home Energy Specialist will be at your home at your scheduled time and will begin your Assessment. The assessment typically takes between 2-3 hours.

You will learn how your home consumes and loses energy and you’ll receive a custom home energy report, along with other recommendations to save like insulation or air sealing upgrades.
