The Future of Home Heating and Cooling –
HeatSmart Can Take You There Today!
Nov. 1 (Thursday) — City of Ithaca
Tompkins County Public Library, Borg Warner Room
101 E Green St, Ithaca, NY 14850
With heating needs in winter, cooling and dehumidification needs in summer, home comfort requires control over air temperature just as you control water temperature at the tap (and heat pumps can become your best water heating option too!). Heat pumps are a tremendous advance because they can heat, cool, and dehumidify your home with significant energy and cost efficiency, all with the push of a button. Heat pumps work at all temperatures and, unlike oil, propane or natural gas heaters, they do all those things with minimal environmental impacts.
But most of us don’t know much about heat pumps, and a lot of what people think that they know is outdated or inaccurate information. We may know enough to be interested, but still not feel we know enough to understand the personal benefits of installing these new systems in our homes.
HeatSmart, which had its origins here in Tompkins County a few years back, is a non-profit community organization devoted to increasing home energy efficiency, saving people money in a great many cases, and reducing the whole community’s carbon footprint. Staff and leadership at HeatSmart endeavor to provide simple information on the effectiveness, personal economic benefits, direct health benefits, and community environmental benefits of adopting heat pumps. HeatSmart can help you choose between different options with confidence and reap the benefits.
