HeatSmart Connecticut is a community-based outreach and education program created by People’s Action for Clean Energy (PACE) to promote the adoption of clean heating and cooling technologies in Connecticut, specifically heat pumps. The Program aims to increase awareness and understanding of heat pumps, and, where appropriate, increase their deployment for both residential and small-scale commercial buildings.
The process starts with connecting residents to Energize Connecticut’s Home Energy Solutions (HES) service providers to perform spot air sealing. Through this process, participants are given options for deeper weatherization. Participants who choose to proceed with added measures may also elect to work with a no-cost energy consultant. The consultant will help them determine what is best for their home, as well as, review contractor quotes. After needed weatherization measures are in place, participants, if interested, are provided with options regarding heat pumps.
PACE works with towns in a variety of ways, including:
Learn the basics of what these remarkable machines can do and if they can make your home more comfortable and economical.
A HeatSmart campaign is a great way to promote efficiency in your town or city.
