The Taghkanic Conservation Advisory Committee will present a public information session entitled An Overview of Heat Pump Technology on Saturday, February 12, 2022 from 10am until noon at the Taghkanic Firehouse, 631 Old State Rte 82, Taghkanic, NY 12521
If you’ve heard about heat pumps but aren’t quite sure how they work, or have other questions about their affordability, efficiency, or how they could be installed in your 19th century home, this session is for you.
According to the New York State Energy Research and Development Association (NYSERDA): In New York State, conventional heating and cooling systems are responsible for 37 percent of energy consumption and 32 percent of greenhouse gas emissions. Clean heating and cooling technologies, such as heat pumps, are making it possible for homes to stay comfortable year- round, save energy, and reduce their carbon footprints. Heat pumps are two to four times as efficient as conventional oil, propane, or electric resistance heating, and ground source heat pumps provide cooling much more efficiently than other cooling systems. They are also a safer and healthier choice for homes, with no combustion of fossil fuels, fuel storage, or carbon monoxide emissions.
The overview will be presented by representatives from RYCOR HVAC, one of New York’s leading distributors / installers of Air-Source Heat Pumps: Scott Arnold - CEO RYCOR for 18 years, Clean Heat / Heat Pump specialist Rob Penny - RYCOR comfort specialist; former product and design specialist for Mitsubishi electric.
Topics to be covered include:
Physics of heat pump technology in heating and cooling
Different types of heat pump systems (central, ductless, ground-source)
Installation considerations & examples
Cost of heat pump installation / operation
Incentives & rebates (NY State, Utility, Other)
