Heat pumps — domestic heating devices that transfer heat rather than generate it from a fuel — are gaining steam as the preferred way to stay warm without harming the planet.

But not many Utahns are up to date with heat pump technology, which has improved in recent years and is now considered a viable option in even the coldest parts of the world.

The event featured representatives from HVAC installers and Rocky Mountain Power who were able to discuss the benefits of heat pumps and the options available. Tribune Renewable Energy reporter Tim Fitzpatrick moderated the discussion, which included questions from the audience.
