Juneau Ductless Heat Pump Market Survey

Thank you to Information Insights for recently completing the Juneau Ductless Heat Pump Market Survey. As the first step in the Thermalize Juneau Department of Energy project, this helps us understand current heat pump user experiences, the reasons behind the heat pump installations, occupant satisfaction, perceived energy savings, and usage patterns. This will inform efforts in this year’s Thermalize Juneau program and other future heat pump initiatives.

Electricity Alaska Presentation

Bob Deering, one of AHS’s energy advisors, recently gave a presentation during the Electrify Alaska event. Electrify Alaska focused on the many exciting opportunities for Beneficial Electrification efforts in Alaska, where electric sector actors work with community groups to achieve mutual goals, like addressing greenhouse gas emissions. Building electrification, through efficient devices like heat pumps, is a key aspect to a Beneficial Electrification strategy, and we are glad AHS was able to showcase Juneau’s efforts in this area.

New Website

Welcome to Alaska Heat Smart’s new website! We’re excited to update the information available to Juneau homeowners interested in Heat Pumps. We will be rolling out new, exciting programs soon to help promote beneficial electrification as a climate solution for Juneau. For now, please explore the different pages available on our website, and be sure to let us know if you notice any areas that could be clarified with additional information!
