CAVENDISH, Vt. – Are you fed up with the high cost of heating your home? Are you ready to look into alternatives? The Cavendish Energy Committee will host a heat pump workshop on Tuesday, Oct. 17, 2017 at 6 p.m. in the town office meeting room, 37 High Street in Cavendish.
The workshop will include a presentation by Brent Coleman, a local heat pump installer who will talk about how air-to-air and ground source heat pumps work and why they can be an effective heat source for a climate such as ours in Vermont. While nobody can predict future housing concerns, energy consumption should be at the top of the list. Heat pumps can cool a house in summer, and warm it in winter, and each owner can recognize an immediate payback in comfort and significant energy bill savings, while lowering his or her carbon footprint.
The presentation will be both informational and educational, focusing on the steps to take in order to make homes more energy efficient with new technology. There will be plenty of time for discussion. At the end of the workshop, you will understand more about the way your home uses energy and one way that you can use to make it more efficient.
The workshop is free, and residents of any town are invited to attend. For more information about the workshop, please call Peter LaBelle at 802-226-7250.
