For those of you interested in the Geothermal Heating and Cooling class and Green Construction: From Design to Clean Up class, these classes have been rescheduled due to inclement weather so there is still time to sign up!
Monday, March 9th from 6:30-8:30pm: Geothermal Heating and Cooling. Ground source heat pumps (GSHP) are one of the most efficient residential heating and cooling systems available today. They use the natural heat storage capacity of the earth or ground water to provide energy efficient heating and cooling. Ed Ricci has extensive experience in this technology and will help you determine if this technology is right for you and your home. Ed is the owner of Energy Management Services in Christiansburg.
Monday, March 23rd from 6-9pm: Green Construction: From Design to Clean Up. Ed Tuchler of Shelter Alternatives, Beth Lohman of DEQ, and Justin Boyle of Green Valley Builders will discuss what should you consider when planning to build a green home. They will look at everything from site and form to construction details and material usage, including minimizing waste and what to do with leftovers.
Sign up for these classes through the YMCA at Virginia Tech.
