The Center for Grieving Children

Royal River Heat Pumps will be featuring the Center for Grieving Children this month on the Ripple to River webpage. Even a small, individual act of kindness can “ripple out” into something significant for kids that are facing challenges nobody ever wants to face. One person’s donation, no matter how small, can combine with others to bring comfort and positive change to a family facing unimaginable challenges after their child has been diagnosed with a critical illness. Ripple to River will highlight one Maine-based organization each month that focuses on supporting these children. More

Giving Back to the Community

A long time ago, the Royal River was an important part of life here in our neck of the woods, powering mills and allowing a community to grow and flourish. Nowadays, we see what the river helped to create. We believe that ordinary people can come together to make a big difference, too, in helping to create a community that continues that growth.

Our “Ripple to River” program is highlighting Make-A-WishⓇ Maine this month, an important organization in our community that could use your help.

Heat Pumps Can Cut Carbon Emissions

According to this article from NPR, Taking on Climate Change at Home: How You can Cut Carbon Emissions, heat pumps are an efficient alternative to heating with fossil fuels, and they provide cooling as well. There is a misconception that you can’t heat your home in Maine exclusively with heat pumps, but that is simply not true. The technology has improved dramatically in recent years and Mitsubishi heat pumps can heat at 100% capacity to -5 degrees. They wont’ stop working there. Even though they start to lose some efficiency below -5, (on those few days we have each year that are that cold), they still work. They are one of the most efficient and affordable ways to heat and cool your home. With Efficiency Maine rebates up to $1500 on qualifying systems, there has never been a better time to buy a new heat pump system. Call 207-400-4065 to learn more.
