Newton Mayor Ruthanne Fuller has been a strong proponent of the city’s HeatSmart program. Below is an exerpt from her July 29th newsletter:
Summer is a great time to install heat pumps. Despite being called “heat” pumps, they provide air conditioning as well as heating. They are efficient and quiet. They can replace natural gas and heating oil, thereby reducing the greenhouse gas emissions that cause climate change. The Heat Smart Newton program is a collaboration of the City of Newton; Green Newton; Newton Mothers Out Front; and 350 Mass, Newton Node; its funded by a grant from the Massachusetts Clean Energy Center. The program has now selected its two vetted suppliers, New England Ductless and Muirfield Mechanical. Get more information at the Heat Smart Newton website here.
