HeatSmart Southern Tier promotes renewable energy and energy efficiency by:
HeatSmart is a grant funded community outreach program that connects you to local heating and cooling experts who offer the latest energy efficient technologies. We bring the experts to you at events and by signing up. If you’re considering a new heating or cooling system for your home we offer free assessments from our partners at no cost.
To learn more or sign up, visit the HeatSmart Southern Tier website.
In order for our community to become sustainable, we need to shift to a more sustainable energy source. BRSC is helping our community shift from fossil fuels, to a MODERN, SUSTAINABLE, RENEWABLE energy future.
We help residences and businesses alike to become more energy efficient, clean, and energy independent.
How does HeatSmart work?
HeatSmart works first and foremost by educating the public about sustainable heating and cooling systems through our workshops, tabling events, and our website. If you sign up for the HeatSmart, you will receive a free inspection and estimate from one of our vetted installer partners. Your estimate will include a 10% discounts off your Air Source Heat Pumps and/or Ground Source Heat Pumps system.
Heat pumps offer an energy-efficient alternative to furnaces and air conditioners. Like your refrigerator, heat pumps use electricity to move heat from a cool space to a warm space, making the cool space cooler and the warm space warmer.
During the heating season, heat pumps move heat from the cool outdoors into your warm house and during the cooling season, heat pumps move heat from your cool house into the warm outdoors. Because they move heat rather than generate heat, heat pumps can provide equivalent space conditioning at as little as one quarter of the cost of operating conventional heating or cooling appliances.
What we’re up to now
We are currently preparing for our 2019 HeatSmart campaign. We will be holding events and traveling to festivals and meetings in: Broome, Tioga, Chenango, and Delaware Counties.
