'Heat Pumps and Heat Pump Water Heaters' Discussion April 16

The University of Scranton will host a discussion entitled, “Heat Pumps and Heat Pump Water Heaters,” on April 16, beginning at 7 p.m. in the Pearn Auditorium, Brennan Hall 228. The event includes three panelists, Todd Parry, CEFP, Assistant Director, Maintenance and Operations at the University of Scranton, Glynn Murphy, Certified Public Accountant (CPA), and Jacob Weinberg, Assistant City Planner, City of Scranton. This event will explain heat pumps and heap pump water heaters, in regard to what they are, how they work, how they can save you money and how they can help the climate. The event is free of charge and open to the public.

“Every year, millions of heat pumps and heat pump water heaters are installed across the United States. The Fifth National Climate Assessment mentions that heat pumps can improve energy efficiency for space cooling and heating while reducing greenhouse gas emissions. Still, many people have questions about how heat pumps work, the financial incentives when adopting them, the factors to consider when hiring an HVAC company, and how these technologies reduce global warming. Our panelists will help answer some of those questions. All interested are welcome to attend,” said Ovidiu Cocieru, Ph.D., Assistant Professor of Management, and the lead organizer of the event.

This discussion is among numerous Earth Day events hosted by the University and its Office of Sustainability and is part of the community outreach efforts of the University in relation to its Laudato Si’ Action Plan.
