The Cavendish Community and Conservation Association in conjunction with the Town of Cavendish will host a heat pump workshop on Thursday, February 12, 2015 at 6:00 p.m. in the town office meeting room, 37 High Street in Cavendish.
The workshop will include a presentation by representatives of Prudent Living Homes and of Brite Lite Electric of Windsor, VT 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 no one can predict all his or her 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 Q & A and 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.
Residents of Cavendish and any other town are invited to attend. For more information about the workshop, please call Peter LaBelle at 802-226-7250.
