What is a heat pump?

What is a heat pump and why are they important? Join the continuation of the Home Retrofit Webinar Series sponsored by SMARTNet Alliance and the City of Ottawa. This session will delve deep into a renewable technology that everyone is talking about: heat pumps. Heat pumps will be a serious tool in reducing greenhouse gas emissions. Technological advances mean they are effective in Ottawa’s cold winters.

Our experts will explain the ins and outs of heat pumps, and what you need to consider before installing one. When combined with air conditioning they can be a wiser choice than natural gas furnaces.

The webinar will also include a tour of the new BetterHomesOttawa.ca website. Staff from Envirocentre will go over the website’s tools and detail the various portals and links throughout the site. This site has been built to help you on your journey of your energy efficient home retrofit. Staff from the City of Ottawa will then provide an update on the Better Home Loan Program.
