Heat pump systems heat and cool your home or office without burning fossil fuels. No on-site combustion means no risk of dangerous carbon monoxide fumes. And since heat pumps run on electricity, they can operate on power generated by renewable energy sources like solar or wind.
The Town of East Hampton’s Green Heating & Cooling campaign helps residents and businesses who want to improve how they heat and cool their homes and buildings. Green Heating and Cooling East Hampton is designed to encourage the community to learn about cleaner and greener heating and cooling technologies and improve their energy efficiency.
Our campaign makes energy efficiency more easily achievable. Insulation and air sealing, together with an air- or ground-source (geothermal) heat pump system can provide great comfort, utility cost savings, and have a positive environmental impact against climate change by reducing greenhouse gases emitted from heating with fossil fuels. What’s more, heat pumps can be powered by renewably-generated electricity, which allows further reduction of climate-changing greenhouse gas emissions.
Green Heating and Cooling East Hampton makes it easier for you to evaluate whether replacing your current heating and/or cooling system makes sense. We connect you with pre-qualified contractors and provide information on available discounts, incentives, tax breaks, financing and payment options.

Save on Heating and Cooling & Reduce Your Carbon Footprint
Installing modern clean heating and cooling technologies, including air source or ground source heat pump systems, can reduce your energy costs, decrease your carbon footprint, and increase everyday comfort. When such technologies are paired with improved insulation and air sealing, the benefits are even greater.
