Tuesday, November 16, 2021 7:30 pm. Green Heating and Cooling For Your Home
Heating and cooling a typical Massachusetts home is the biggest contributor to your household’s greenhouse gas emissions. Converting to heat pumps for heating and cooling is the best way to reduce those emissions. Whether you’re actively thinking about replacing, greening, and/or upgrading your heating or cooling systems, this workshop is for you. Our speaker, Steve Breit, is a volunteer and board member of MassEnergize, and a co-founder of HeatSmart Alliance. Since retiring in 2018, Steve has dedicated much of his time to advocating for heating electrification with heat pump technology by organizing local events and doing in-depth coaching of neighbors and friends.
