Ductless Heat Pumps, Threat or Opportunity?
Presented by: Bob Hedden of Hedden Company
There seems to be growing enthusiasm for this relatively new technology.
Many environmental activists, legislators, and regulators see heat pumps and electric cars as the way for Maine to lower its carbon footprint.
The question we will explore in this session is should Propane Suppliers, HVAC Contractors and Oilheat Companies be selling, installing, and servicing these things or are they a threat to our survival we should be fighting?
Bob will present everything we have learned about the advantages and disadvantages of heat pumps to help you decide if this diversification would be a good fit for your company. There are so many variables that impact heat pump use and its results that every customer’s experience with them will be different. Bob will explore what the variables are, and how to help you and your customers figure out if a heat pump installation is for them.
