ENVISION THIS: A technology that heats and cools homes, increases comfort, saves money, and benefits the environment all in one Our guest, Adam Barker-Hoyt of Maine Alternative Comfort, sees the efficiency and savings offered by mini-split heat pump technology as something that can substantively benefit people, the environment and the economy. He brings his knowledge, skills, and experience in the fields of energy, math, science, philosophy and teaching to his work drawing up specs for a home, educating potential customers, and training sub-contractors to install the mini-split heat pumps. Adam has installed heat pumps in over 150 Maine homes, including that of the energy guru, Dick Hill, Professor Emeritus of the mechanical engineering department, and the governor's mansion. His website claims, ?A typical homeowner in Maine spends roughly $3,000 per year in oil, kerosene, propane, or electric heat. But, a simple retrofit can cut these costs in half! With a savings of $1,500 per year and an initial cost of $3,000, Fujitsu mini-split heat pumps pay themselves off in 2 years... resulting in thousands of dollars of savings, increased energy security, and a greener environment.? The mini-split system locates the noisy compressor and condenser outside the house, uses thin copper tubing that pumps refrigerant or heat directly to discreet wall mounted blowers inside. Copper tubing running through a small 3 to 4-inch opening in the wall or ceiling easily connects the indoor and outdoor units. Fujitsu's Green Policy places the highest priority on the protection of the environment, strives to reduce the environmental impact of their products throughout the product lifecycle, and seeks to reduce risks to human health and the environment from the use of harmful chemical substances or waste.
