Hey, Vermont Homeowners — Did you know you that energy from the sun can heat and cool your home? Solar heat can replace dirty and expensive heating fuels like oil and propane. A typical homeowner can save hundreds of dollars each year with a solar heat pump, and enjoy clean energy air conditioning in the summer, too!
Please note: We love heat pumps and will gladly install solar to support your heating and cooling needs, but we no longer install heat pumps ourselves. For residents of Chittenden, Washington, Franklin, Grand Isle, Addison, and Lamoille Counties who are looking for just heat pumps (but not solar), please contact Vermont Energy. For residents of Rutland, Windsor, Orange, and Caledonia Counties who are looking for just heat pumps (but not solar), please contact Excel Plumbing & Heating.

Will you save money on your heating bills?
Solar heating and cooling is quiet and comfortable. This smart technology can keep your home consistently warm and cozy through the winter — and dry and cool all summer long. Allergens and dust are filtered out as the heated or cooled air is circulated in the house. The installation is easy and takes typically just one day.
Tired of dirty fuel heating your home? Solar systems produce more power than a home needs during the summer, spinning the utility meter backwards and building up a big electricity credit. As a result, you’ll be able to use those extra credits at night and during the shorter days of winter to run your ultra-efficient heating and cooling unit.
Most of us still heat our homes with fuel oil or propane. However, fuel pricing studies have shown that solar heat is the big winner. For that reason, it is now possible to save big with solar at a fraction of the cost of heating fuel! (Your added bonus is guilt-free cooling!)
