Benefits of Heat Pumps
Heat pumps are a winning strategy for a broad cross section of projects such as retrofits for landmark buildings, mixed-use properties, apartment buildings, or school buildings, that provides benefits including but not limited to financial savings, improved indoor air quality, and environmental leadership.
The evolution of heat pump technology has opened the opportunity for buildings to fully electrify their heating and cooling systems with the assurance of efficiency, reliability, and room-by-room temperature control.
Often, there is misinformation about geothermal technology everywhere! Our team is happy to share more information about Air Source Heat Pump and Ground Source Heat Pump technology for your property or business
Con Edison, with millions of residential and commercial gas customers, including 232,000 in Westchester County, has placed a moratorium on natural gas expansion. As a consequence Con Edison will no longer be accepting applications for new natural gas connections in most of their Westchester service region, however will continue to serve its existing customers.
New York’s landmark new law, the Climate Leadership and Community Protection Act (Climate Act), was signed in July 2019 by Governor Andrew M. Cuomo and aims to confront the greatest threat facing life as we know it —a rapidly changing climate. New York is taking a sweeping set of measures to reduce our carbon footprint, make our communities more resilient, and adapt to a changing climate. The State’s new climate law sets the stage for this and creates the opportunity for citizens and communities to partner with businesses, schools, and government to create a green economy and build a climate-proof future with the help of clean heating and cooling technologies. Goals: By 2040: achieve 100% zero-emission electricity | By 2050: reduce emissions at least 85% below 1990 levels
