The Montachusett Opportunity Council's (MOC) Energy Services programs help to optimize your home's efficiency to save money and increase comfort.
The Heating System Repair and Replacement Program (HEARTWAP) provides heating system repairs and replacements for income eligible homeowners. The program is operational year round. During the winter months, the program focuses on providing assistance to low-income clients who are having problems with their primary heating system. Priority for HEARTWAP services is given to clients in an emergency no-heat or unsafe heating situation. Non-essential heating system work is deferred until the end of the heating season or until it is clear that MOC will have enough funding to provide services for all emergencies. During the spring and summer months, HEARTWAP provides heating system maintenance and clean and tune services. Only homeowners are eligible for services through HEARTWAP. However, MOC can assist tenants in advocating for their rights with landlords in no-heat situations.
