Heat Pump Workshop

The Biosphere Association in collaboration with the Municipality’s Climate Action and Waste Diversion Committee will be offering a workshop designed to answer your questions about heat pumps. This initiative is one step towards implementation of our community’s Climate Action Plan

Eric Crose of Crose Mechanical and Dan Blenkinsop, an energy auditor as well as other experts will be on hand to answer any questions you might have. Register below.

Learn about:

  • Types of heat pumps and how they work
  • When it is time to switch your heating system
  • Determining if a hybrid system is a better solution for you
  • Installation and operating costs of a heat pump versus propane or wood heat
  • Climate benefits of heat pumps
  • Compelling reasons to install a heat pump, even without a grant (as dozens already have on the Peninsula)
  • Existing financial help

The Greener Homes Grant has offered funds to help install heat pumps, as well as other things (like windows, solar panels, upgraded insulation). According to their site, the program is temporarily pausing intake of new applicants effective January 19, 2024. They say this will allow them time to reconcile the participation in the program. If you would like to stay informed on program updates or new program offerings, please provide them with your email address and they will notify you with any updates as they become available.
