Sundog Solar Collaboration Offers Discounted Heat Pumps on Mt Desert Island Maine
A new partnership is allowing MDI homeowners to install energy-saving heat pumps at a significant discount.
By: Sundog Solar
The goal of the program is to boost local energy independence throughout Mt Desert Island. Heat pumps are very efficient and are one of the most economical ways to heat homes in Maine. In fact, heat pumps cost less to operate than a pellet stove and are significantly more economical than a propane boiler or oil furnace due to energy savings.
Unfortunately, two-thirds of Maine homes use fuel oil as the primary heating source, and most of Maine's energy dollars are leaving the state. If homes electrify and then source solar and other forms of renewable energy, it dramatically reduces greenhouse gas emissions, promotes the local economy, and saves money.
"Our customers are thrilled by the dramatic reduction in their heating bills after installing heat pumps," says Chuck Piper, co-owner of Sundog Solar (http://www.sundog.solar). "This is also an effective way to reduce reliance on fossil fuels."
Solar panels and heat pumps are a winning combination!
Ductless mini-splits are easy to install and work well on existing homes. The Sundog Solar team of skilled technicians is known for providing excellent customer service and completing exceptional work. They use high-quality mini-split units with long warranties.
This partnership, Electrify MDI runs through June 30 and provides a streamlined process for installing residential heat pumps. To signup for a free assessment, visit aclimatetothrive.org/
