The Finn Home

Bill had been heating his Preble lake-front cottage with a propane furnace and a wood stove for over 40 years.  He was experiencing health issues related to smoke and ash and decided it was time for a change.  He was looking around online and found Halco for the installation.  Halco was able to put together all the necessary financing, which is how Bill found the Finger Lakes Climate Fund.

He says the heat pump is marvelous; the winter of 2022 is his first winter using it.  Because Halco installed it in June 2022, Bill was able to take advantage of its cooling capability, too.  Now he doesn’t have to carry heavy wood to feed the wood stove.  Bill worked for over 23 years in environmental work that included soil and water conservation and monitoring. It was a natural for him to turn to heat pumps. Congratulations to Bill, Climate Hero and Finger Lakes Climate Fund Awardee #75!
