A huge shout out to our partners at the Cold Climate Housing Research Center in Fairbanks for helping to pull this story together!
Through the assistance of Thermalize Juneau, local homeowners interested in clean energy are taking advantage of heat pumps. The program helps them leverage their buying power to obtain discounts and provides technical assistance to demystify the process of installing a new and unfamiliar technology.
We continue to learn from our first Thermalize campaign. It’s closing in on the end of February and we’re right about at the half way point with heat pump installations and energy efficiency home retrofit projects. We’ve decided to push the second installment of Thermalize off until fall of 2022 at the earliest. If you are currently on our TJ 2.0 wait list, we’ll be in touch with more information very soon. Stay tuned for more news on TJ 2.0 scheduling. In the meantime, we encourage you to get your foot in the door so to speak and sign up for a free Alaska Heat Smart home heat pump energy assessment. As homeowners in the AK Business article stated, the knowledge gained from the assessment can really help to inform your decision making process about how to move forward with amendments to your home heating system.
