Heat pumps are an exciting renewable technology which can extract heat from the ground or the air, and can both heat and cool buildings. Heat pumps and energy efficiency are a key way to reduce the environmental impact of homes and buildings, which make up a third of New York’s emissions.Heat pumps are also often cheaper, healthier, easier, and safer to operate than conventional heating systems.
HeatSmart CNY is a community program through the Central New York Regional Planning and Development Board and Alliance for A Green Economy, dedicated to making it easier and more affordable to electrify and improve the energy efficiency of our homes and buildings. They are one of the many Clean Heating and Cooling Community projects funded by the New York State Energy Research and Development Authority across the state.
The New York State Energy Research and Development Authority (NYSERDA) has awarded over $9 million to support nearly 20 HeatSmart Community Campaigns throughout the state which conduct community outreach and education efforts to inform residents about the benefits of heat pumps, home energy efficiency improvements and other clean energy technologies.
