Holy Heat Pumps: A Webinar on Heat Pumps for Faith Communities

October 2, 2023

October 25, 1pm ET.  Register here.

How we cool and heat our buildings is a significant part of how we address the climate crisis. When it comes to Heating, Ventilation, and Air Conditioning (HVAC) systems, heat pumps are a crucially important technology in the transition away from fossil fuels. This webinar will explain how heat pumps work and how government funds can be accessed by congregations for their purchase. We will hear a success story from a local faith community that installed both air-source and ground-source heat pumps. Finally, we will address frequently asked questions, such as, “What do you do with a building that has had radiator heating?”

Panelists will include:

John Agan, Policy Analyst, U.S. Department of Energy

Colby May, President, Energy for Purpose

Jim Brown, Engineer, Energy for Purpose

Jim Fritz, Good Shepherd Lutheran, Decorah, Iowa

This webinar is cohost by the Rev. Dr. Brooks Berndt, who serves as the Minister of Environmental Justice for the United Church of Christ, and Sarah Paulos, who serves as the Community Engagement and Programs Director for Interfaith Power & Light. Webinar co-sponsors include Blessed Tomorrow, Christian Church (Disciples of Christ), Unitarian Universalist Association, and United Women in Faith.  Register for this free event HERE.
