Saturday, Feb 3 at 10:00AM. Take action to reduce greenhouse gas emissions in your home by replacing your aging air conditioner and furnace with an air source heat pump! Get the facts about heat pumps at an educational event sponsored by the Green Sanctuary Committee and other local environmental organizations on Saturday, February 3, 10:00 - 11:30 AM at the Unitarian Church of Lincoln, 6300 A Street.
Resilient Electric Analytics estimates that the average cost difference between installing a traditional AC/gas furnace or an air source heat pump in a 2,400 square foot home in Lincoln is $1,700, and using a heat pump will reduce greenhouse gas emissions by 43 tons over its lifetime. The City of Lincoln and LES are offering a combo rebate of $1,800 with the purchase of a 15.2 SEER2 air source heat pump, so now is a good time to install one in your home. (SEER stands for Seasonal Energy Efficiency Ratio.)
Speakers at the event will explain the basics of how a heat pump works, why it is important not to wait until your unit is broken to replace it, economic costs and environmental benefits of air source heat pumps, and rebates and tax credits available for installing heat pumps. Speakers include City Council Representative Bennie Shobe, former City Council Representative and State Senator Ken Haar, former City Council Representative Curt Donaldson, Lincoln’s Chief Sustainability Officer Kim Morrow, and Lincoln Electric System Manager of Energy Services Marc Shkolnick.
