Learn about Heat Pump Basics on Nov. 17th

Join us via Zoom on Wednesday, November 17th at 7 PM to learn about “Heat Pump Basics.”

After one of the hottest summers on record, and the prospect of more hot summers to come, many of us are thinking about air conditioning. Heat pumps, traditional and ductless, offer just that, as well as energy efficient heating for our homes.

Ductless heat pumps have been widely used for decades in Asia and Europe and are increasingly popular in this country because they offer a clean energy solution for home heating and cooling while also reducing energy costs. Ductless heat pumps do not require removal of existing oil or gas forced air systems. They can be installed in addition to those systems, allowing the use of clean electric heating for most of the year, and the gas/oil system for the coldest weeks – with the added benefit of home cooling during the hot months.

Daniel Poppe of Spark Northwest, a local clean energy nonprofit, will discuss how Ductless Heat Pumps work and what to know when considering a project. Spark Northwest has helped hundreds of Washington and Oregon residents switch to solar and energy efficient solutions for their homes.

This information session is sponsored by Lake Forest Park People for Climate Action and is free to the public.
