Heat Pumps Webinar for Existing Homes

Existing Homes

These two webinars are free, one-hour webinars, from 5:00 – 6:00 PM.

These webinars target a) homes with radiant heating systems and b) homes with propane or gas furnaces. Heat pumps offer cooling during summer months, while reducing consumption of fuel for heating during cooler months, lowering your home’s carbon footprint, and reducing heating costs in most cases.

Dates:

  • July 19th: Mini-Split Heat Pumps for cooling (and heating). This webinar targets homeowners interested in adding mini-split heat pumps to homes with radiant (in-floor) heat, homes with hydronic baseboard heat, or homes with electric baseboard heating.
