Lexington HeatSmart is a town-wide initiative to empower residents to adopt clean heating and cooling technologies with confidence. Through this program you can connect with a trained Energy Advisor who will help you explore your options for installing heat pumps, heat pump water heaters, and solar thermal systems—whether to replace or enhance your current system. Your Energy Advisor (with the support of Abode Energy Management) can help you:

Explore clean heating and cooling technology

  1. I am a Winchester heat pump enthusiast who used my gas furnace to heat my 120 yr. old house only 24 hours last year (when wind chill below -30 F). Six of our seven new mini-splits (top floor one not needed except when rare guests) and two air source heat pumps kept us very comfortable. Our home also has a 3,000 kWh solar array plus solar hot water. All purchase electricity need is WinPower 100.I am encouraging others to install heat pumps, especially ground source if they have the space and funds. However, given my experience. I would not share your chart indicating any, let alone significant, operating cost savings from air source heat pumps after changing from fossil fuel heating and conventional cooling, especially if the audience includes those now using natural gas and modest air conditioning with newer air-conditioners. Please provide much more information about the Cost Saving chart whenever you share it. Otherwise I fear much disappointment in some who converter. And much continued use of a fossil fuel back-up system if still in place.
    Conversion to heat pumps is the right thing to do, but not likely an action that promises short term financial pay back, especially if using natural gas currently.
