The Routt County Building Department is holding a workshop for building professionals to learn more about heat pumps and electrification, as well as geothermal systems. This is critical information for local general contractors, designers, consultants and mechanical contracts as we evolve and make transitions from traditional methods to new technology to reduce carbon emissions within buildings.  The heat pump portion of the class will focus on the pros and cons between gas vs. electric resistance and the potential for water heating and air heating and cooling.  The class also will provide information on the different types of geothermal systems and the benefits of each, along with information on the tax credits related to these technologies.  Paul Bony from Yampa Valley Sustainability Council and Scott Musgrave from Orca Energy will present during the training. RSVP is required, and lunch and snacks will be provided. Please email Todd Carr at�tcarr@co.routt.co.us�to RSVP. The Building Department will also host a second training from noon-3 p.m. on how to use CityView Community Development Software. The training will include information on applications, searching for information, scheduling inspections and using the software as a project management tool.  The Building Department aims to provide users with the ability to be educated on ways the software, which can be tricky to navigate, benefits users. The session will include an hour for Q&A and input on the software and how it can be improved.  Nick Neiberger from the Routt County Building Department will lead the session.
