Ground Source and Air Source Heat Pumps Information Workshop

Chapter Event
Feb 15 2017 - 7:00pm to 9:00pm

Getting ready to install a ground source heat pump at a Kamloops residence. By Shine Energy Systems Inc.

BCSEA Kamloops Chapter invites you to an informative session on how heating and cooling your home with a heat pump might reduce your costs and fossil fuel emissions.   

Rob Purdy, volunteer steering committee member with the BC Sustainable Energy Association (BCSEA), will start off the evening with a presentation and short videos, and a panel of experts will be there to answer your questions.


What you will leave with: Information on how to lower your carbon footprint and save money, and free information material. Among others, we aim to show you:

  • The basics of how a heat pump works and why they are much more efficient than conventional fossil fuel furnaces and boilers.
  • The types of heat pumps commonly used in Canadian homes, as well as the efficiency ratings for different types: ground source, water source, air source and mini-split heat pumps.
  • The features of a heat pump including the important ones to consider when presented with a quote from a heat pump installer.
  • How heat pumps can reduce the fossil fuels used in your home. Fact: 17 percent of the energy used in Canada goes towards running our homes, which generates 15 percent of the country’s greenhouse gas emissions.
  • The importance of home draft proofing and insulation when considering heat pumps.
