Webinar: Mini-Split Heat Pumps for Heating & Cooling
Are you looking to add cooling to your existing house, condo or townhouse with in-floor/boiler, or baseboard heating? Are you remodeling or expanding your home and need to add heating and cooling? Are you interested in reducing your high electric bills from electric baseboard heating?
In this one-hour workshop, homeowners will learn about adding a mini-split heat pump system to existing homes with radiant (in-floor) heat, hydronic (baseboard) heat, or electric baseboard heat. We will review the cost/benefit case for homeowners changing to or adding this technology. Learn how a cold climate mini-split heat pump is the most flexible and cost-effective heating and cooling solution for homes heated with a boiler, or baseboard heat, that want to add cooling or supplemental heating. And, learn how mini-splits may save you 50-70% on heating bills from electric baseboard heating. Mini-split heat pumps are easy to retrofit into existing homes and can make your home more comfortable. This webinar is focused on practical information and tips for homeowners. We will review:
- The advancement of traditional heat pumps technology to cold climate systems that are made to work in our region/the coldest climates in the US
- What a mini-split heat pump system is & how it operates
- Strategies to add cooling and heating to homes with radiant boiler systems and new additions, or replace electric baseboards
- Cost comparison between mini-split heat pumps and traditional options
- Tips on getting a good heat pump system for your home (design and installation)
- Pitfalls to avoid when getting a new heating system
- Best practices for selecting a contractor and how to work with them to get a quality system that meets your needs and budget
- Rebate programs & local incentives
- There will be an opportunity for questions at the end of the presentation. A ZOOM link will be sent with confirmation & reminder emails.
