PennTAP: Southwestern PA Energy Efficiency Roundtable Meets Nov. 2 On Benefits Of HVAC Equipment Upgrades, Funding Opportunities

Penn State Technical Assistance Program will host a November 2 meeting of the Southwestern PA Energy Efficiency Roundtable.  Presentations will focus on the benefits of HVAC equipment upgrades and related funding opportunities. 

As utility costs remain high, managing your baseload heating and cooling equipment can make a great difference on your operating costs. 

HVAC equipment has come a long way since the 1990s, when the first efficiency standards were put into practice. 

In January 2023, the Department of Energy announced new HVAC regulations, impacting both heating and cooling equipment. 

The program will feature GBBN Architects on the different incentive programs funding through the Inflation Reduction Act (IRA). 

These incentives can be used to fund new HVAC upgrades and can also be stacked with other energy efficiency funding programs - allowing you to take advantage of new, efficient equipment and supporting your sustainability goals by reducing your utilities consumption and lowering your facility’s operating costs. 

The Electric & Gas Industries Association, a nonprofit organization made up of industry-leading professionals, will be sharing a segment of their Contractor University materials, providing background on the new HVAC efficiency updates, as well as diving into the different technological advancements and innovative growth within the HVAC market.

The meeting will be held at the Boyce Campus, Community College of Allegheny County at 595 Beatty Road in Monroeville, Allegheny County from 8:00 a.m. to Noon.
