Stretch your Energy Budget | Today’s Heat Pumps
March 2 | 1:30 pm - 3:30 pm
Today’s heat pumps can stretch your energy budget!
Have you heard of an air source heat pump (ASHP)? The ASHP is now one of the most efficient ways to heat a home. The technology has been around for a long time but most people don’t realize it’s an option for them.
Join us at Evolv1, Canada’s first net-positive energy multi-tenant building, for our workshop on air source heat pumps! The performance reliability and efficiency of the technology makes an air source heat pump an attractive option for homeowners. A local system installer will explain how the ASHP functions, and the potential benefits to installing the system. Any technical questions you may have will be answered by an industry expert!
Learn about the various system designs and receive expert advice on which ASHP model will be best suited for your home. If you’re a homeowner or landlord in Waterloo Region, you’re also invited to take part in a short study examining consumer interest in installing the ASHP. Participation in the study is voluntary, and you are welcome to attend the workshop without taking part in the study.
