Advanced heat pumps are now a comfortable, cost-effective and environmentally friendly way to heat and cool many homes in New England. Come learn about air-source and ground-source heat pumps, and heat pump water heaters, especially if you:
want to learn why heat pumps are greener than conventional heating systems
don’t have air conditioning but want it before summer temperatures arrive
have an old heating system and want to know about replacement options for oil, propane, gas, or electric baseboards
Meet installers to learn which systems might work for your home. Talk with neighbors who have installed systems. Meet community heating/cooling coaches who can help you sort it all out. Find out about available financial incentives.
If you have interest in Heat Pumps, please come to one of two community events on June 8th in Concord, or June 11th in Wayland. There will be a brief presentation on heat pumps for home and water heating, testimonials from residents who’ve installed air-source or ground-source systems and HP water heaters, and a chance to ask questions of several participating contractors in the MA Home MVP program. And please pass this on to any friends that may be interested in this.
We are happy to announce that the results of the HeatSmart Carlisle/Concord/Lincoln (CCL) program exceeded expectations! The program ran from March-August, 2018, using three selected installers: Achieve Renewables (Ground-source Heat Pumps), New England Ductless (Air-source Heat Pumps), and New Day Energy (Modern Wood Heat). In many cases, residents chose other companies for their installation, though still received information and coaching through the program, and received the same equipment rebates.
