About HeatSmart: A Community Program Bringing the Option of Heat Pumps to Homes

Chris Mason, Northampton’s Energy & Sustainability Officer, will lead this conversation on ways to increase the market share of cold climate air source heat pumps, one of the most efficient ways to heat and cool your home or business.

Grist for the conversation will include a report by Chris on Northampton’s HeatSmart program (a Solarize-type program for air source heat pumps) that is running from September 2017 to the end of January 2018; and an overview of Northampton’s work to use public information on Northampton’s residential building stock and infrared scans of Northampton’s single family homes to identify micro-target messages to promote clean energy and energy efficient home improvements.
