Where do I Start?

The first step in the conversion process is determining what type of system you already have. If you are unsure, contact a local mechanical contractor to assist you. Once you have determined what type of system you have, you can better understand your options.

There are a variety of resources statewide that can help. One resources is Alaska Housing Finance Corporation (AHFC). The AHFC helps Alaskans find energy programs to meet their needs.

AHFC can assist you in finding the right options to help you achieve your home energy conversion goals.

The Cold Climate Housing Research Center (CCHRC) is another great resource for determining what heating system may work best for you. Check out for more information.
