With natural gas prices high and federal and state tax credits in place, 2023 may be the year to explore adding a new heat pump to your home. The Southwest Energy Efficiency Project (SWEEP) is offering a free webinar beginning at 12;00 noon MST on Thursday, February 16 for those interested in a shift to efficient clean energy via electric heat pumps.

In this free webinar, the Southwest Energy Efficiency Project (SWEEP) will highlight the key points to consider in electrifying both new and existing homes — for homeowners, new home buyers, and HVAC contractors, as well as utilities, local governments, and new home builders.

The presenters will also highlight the federal and state tax credits and utility rebates, which will more than cover the cost of replacing/upgrading your central AC to a heat pump system to deliver heating and cooling to your home.

Finally, the webinar will show examples of homes making this type of upgrade, and of all-electric new homes with very low energy costs and excellent indoor air quality.

This hour-long webinar will feature presentations and Q&A with:

  • Neil Kolwey, SWEEP Building Electrification Specialist
  • David Petroy, NTS Energy
  • Rachel Ellis, SWEEP Communications Fellow
