Our regular CHAPTER Zoom meeting
The (Energy efficient, Electric) Heat is On:
Air Source Heat Pumps
Featured Speaker: Alexis Troschinetz, Behavioral Science and Evaluation Manager
CERTs - University of MN Regional Sustainable Development Partnerships and Extension
Interested in learning more about air source heat pumps? Join this session for an introduction about how air source heat pumps work in Minnesota's cold climate for heating and how they are a great option when adding or replacing air conditioning. Stories of Minnesotans adopting heat pumps in their homes will be shared, including what was concerning and appealing about this energy efficient electric home heating and cooling option. Anticipated technology improvements and heat pump uses beyond home heating and cooling will be covered. Attendees will leave with project planning tools to help take the next steps toward getting an air source heat pump at their home or property.
