Reasons to Promote Heat Pumps – May Newsletter

Now is the best time to promote heat pump systems

Your customers probably aren’t thinking about their HVAC system – until it acts up or stops working entirely. It’s a good thing you’re looking out for them! Customers may have heard the term “heat pumps” but don’t know what they’re all about. You can help explain how they work, their benefits and why now is an excellent time to prepare for when their equipment needs to be replaced.


Be the first person your customers think of when they’re ready to upgrade to a heat pump or know someone who needs new HVAC equipment. Visit Wattsmart Homes Heat Pumps.

You have the power to make a difference – one energy-efficient HVAC installment at a time.

Customers can expect this virtual assessment to take approximately 1-2 hours. The areas which will be covered include:

  • HVAC system evaluation – including age, hot and/or cold spots
  • Thermostat
  • Appliances – dishwasher, refrigerator and laundry
  • Lighting
  • Doors – weather stripping and air sealing
  • Insulation in walls, attic and floor
  • Foundation and crawl spaces
  • Windows
