Have you considered using a heat pump in your home or business?
Poll Description

Mainers are pumped up about heat pumps, as Mainebiz reported in our Feb. 19 edition.

The devices can help cut heating costs, as well as the state's reliance on fossil fuels. 

Heat pumps come in various forms. All work, basically, by transferring heat from the outdoor air or from the ground into a home's interior. The same technology can also provide cooling, ventilation and dehumidification.

In 2019, Gov. Janet Mills set a goal of installing 100,000 heat pumps across Maine — in homes, businesses and public buildings — by 2025. The target was exceeded two years early, and now the state is working to get another 175,000 heat pumps pumping by 2027.

If it achieves that goal, Maine would have a total of more than 320,000 heat pumps in use.
