Application for HeatSmart Tompkins Installer Partners
Please fill out this form and submit by end of business on June 11, 2021
HeatSmart Tompkins invites local heat pump and building envelope experts in serving Tompkins and/or Chemung Counties to apply for partnership in our 2021-2022 Campaigns. HeatSmart campaigns provide personal outreach to community groups along with broad advertising efforts to generate more jobs for participating businesses (Installer partners). Installer partners receive leads through the program and are also personally presented to the community at public meetings and on webinars.
The primary focus is on residential buildings for single- or small multi- family buildings, with an emphasis on retrofitting and improving the existing housing stock and heating systems in our area. We also reach out to small businesses and those planning to construct new buildings. The territory covered by the program includes Tompkins and Chemung Counties with a special emphasis on the gas constrained Town of Lansing. Please contribute your expertise to this effort, grow your business, and help us improve the energy efficiency of buildings in these communities!
We are seeking multiple installers to work closely with the HeatSmart Tompkins team as trusted campaign partners and serve the public by installing home weatherization and relevant clean heating and cooling technologies while helping to expand awareness of these technologies over the course of the program. Technologies offered include air-source heat pumps (ASHP), including space heating (dual-fuel and stand-alone central air systems) and heat pump water heaters (HPWH), and ground-source heat pumps (GSHP).
The goals of HeatSmart Tompkins include:
• Increase public awareness of energy efficient clean heating and cooling technologies
• Build long-term interest and demand for these technologies in the local market
• Decrease the emissions of greenhouse gasses through improved efficiency, beneficial electrification, and adoption of renewable energy.
The selected installer(s) will work collaboratively with the HeatSmart Tompkins team to implement a one year community marketing and outreach campaign from July 1, 2021-June 30, 2022. The selected Installer(s) will receive leads and will be actively promoted to the community as HeatSmart Tompkins’s competitively-selected Installer(s).
About HeatSmart Tompkins
Solar Tompkins was incorporated in 2014 as a New York State not-for-profit corporation. It has conducted four previous HeatSmart Tompkins campaigns and two Solarize campaigns. Our core mission is the reduction of greenhouse gas emissions by promoting positive energy efficiency solutions.
Heat pump and building efficiency technologies are proven and effective both in increasing resident health and comfort, as well as reducing energy costs for residents. There is still an on-going need for homeowner education. Homeowners often lack sufficient understanding of how these technologies operate and which choice would be appropriate for their home. HeatSmart will help simplify the experience of prospective customers by providing public education, being a trusted third party (HeatSmart attaches no fees on work gained through the program) and facilitating enrollee experiences in a coordinated process that is comprehensive for building envelope, space heating, and domestic water heating technologies.
