Sustainable Heating to Save the Planet & Invigorate Our Community

Pat Coon, a co-founder of reVision Heat, will be giving a presentation at the Wells Reserve at Laudholm Farm on Nov. 14 as part of their Climate Steward series. The presentation will touch on how climate change is impacted by our home heating choices and how sustainable heating is part of the solution. From the Laudholm Farm website:

Learn about the latest advances in pellet boiler and air source heat pump technology and how they are changing the way we heat in Maine. See examples of homeowners saving up to 50% on heating costs and reducing their CO2 by 90%. Get answers to common questions such as:

Solar heat

  • How much do these systems cost?
  • Do I need to keep my oil boiler?
  • How much money will I save by switching?
  • Are wood pellets really sustainable?
  • What is my return on investment?

As climate change rapidly redefines our world and how we interact with it, it’s important to embrace alternative heating technology. Alternatives such as Kedel pellet boilers are now not only are affordable, they also dramatically reduce the amount of CO2 and particulates released into the environment as well as boost our local economy and create more jobs. While we may not be able to reverse the damage that has been done, with sustainable heating choices, we can start positively impacting our planet. Following the program, a raffle will be conducted, and a lucky program participant will receive a door prize with a $50 value. Suggested donation of $5 per person. Pre-registration is not required. Meet in Mather Auditorium.
