Green Heating & Cooling for Homes and Businesses

March 9, 2021 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm

Homeowner and Business Options for Reducing Energy and Greenhouse Gas Emissions

March 9 @ 7:00 pm – 8:00 pm

If you are a home or business owner in our region, you are likely thinking about ways to save money on your home heating and cooling energy costs. You can do this and reduce greenhouse gas emissions at the same time!

As a follow up from our January 5, Climate Action Panel Discussion Program, Delaware-Ostego Audubon Society is scheduling a series of programs to dig deeper into some of our topics to address carbon reductions in our region’s communities. This program will look at options for our rural households for heating and cooling alternatives to fuel oil.

Air Source Heat Pumps

About the Presenter, Bennett Sandler

Bennett Sandler started a local business about 12 years ago with two others doing residential energy audits and energy efficiency upgrades, including air and ground source heat pump installations.  He is now the Campaign Director for Heat Smart Mowhawk Valley, a community-based education and group purchasing program for clean heating and cooling technologies. 

HSMV seeks to offer residents and businesses the opportunity to improve building comfort and reduce greenhouse gas emissions from heating and cooling by adopting advanced air-source, ground-source (geothermal) heat pumps and modern wood heating systems including pellet and wood gasification boilers and EPA-certified Pellet Stoves at a discount from the regional average.
