Heat pumps offer a clear path to using “clean” energy, such as renewable energy. The recent Inflation Reduction Act (IRA) has plans to incentivize heat pump installations and there are other legislative efforts under development to incentivize manufacturers to produce more heat pumps. However, there are many factors that need to be considered. Join us as Codes & Coffee goes live to discuss issues like:

  • The impact on the grid’s infrastructure
  • The financial implications of shifting the peak electric load from summer to winter
  • What installation considerations must be taken
  • A reasonable transition to heat pumps.

ACCA Team Members David Bixby & Ed Janowiak will co-present.
