Green Home Tour: Dreaming of Air Conditioning, Replacing a Furnace, or Remodeling?
Join a virtual tour and Q&A with the owners of four homes using heat pumps for heating and cooling
Wednesday, Oct, 6 from 7-8 pm—Free!
Coordinated by the Bringing Back the Natives Garden Tour and the East Bay Green Home Tour
Did you know that nearly 40% of greenhouse gas emissions come from the natural gas we use in our buildings? And that moving forward—electrifying—or switching our furnaces, stoves, water heaters, and clothes dryers from gas to electricity—will be key to controlling global warming? Many people don’t know that buildings are our second biggest source of greenhouse gas emissions (cars are the first).
We hope you’ll join us on Wednesday, October 6, from 7:00 to 8:00 pm for a free Zoom presentation, “Dreaming of air conditioning, replacing a furnace, or remodeling?” that will feature four homes that have replaced gas furnaces with heat pumps for heating and cooling air. Learn how you can get air conditioning for free, and, what rebates are available for installing heat pumps, and, if you also install solar panels, how you will no longer pay a PG&E bill.
“Tour” four homes with heat pumps, and find out:
• How you can help combat climate change and save money by ditching natural gas
• What is a heat pump for heating and cooling air? Why are they better than air conditioners?
• The difference between ductless and ducted heat pump systems
• How four different homeowners have replaced their gas heaters with super-efficient heat pumps that are powered by electricity
• What rebates are available
Ask questions of the homeowners, and a heat pump expert from EcoPerformance Builders.
