When it comes to choosing the best AC company, we can help!
Here are some things that put air conditioning in perspective:
- 3/4 of all homes in America have air conditioning installed
- The average American residential utility customer consumes 10,812 kWh a year. Of that, 6% is used to run air conditioners, which means roughly 650 kWh in a year
- The total cost of that to homeowners is $29 billion
- The amount of carbon dioxide going into the air every year as a direct result of air conditioning in this country is 117 million metric tons
Those figures, by the way, come from the Department of Energy – they weren’t made up by some air conditioning outfit looking for a quick buck.
What numbers like that tell us is that we need to be careful about our air-conditioning. To move with the times. To do everything we possibly can to make sure that our air-conditioning is efficient – for our own sake (to keep the bills down) and for the sake of Americans yet to be born (so we don’t wreck the country, pollute the water, and destroy the forests).
For decades, air conditioners and refrigerators used CFCs (chlorofluorocarbons), but it’s CFCs that damage the ozone layer, and they’re not made here any more. We switched to HCFCs (halogenated chlorofluorocarbons), but were getting rid of those, too, and eventually it will all be either HFCs (hydrofluorocarbons) or ammonia. The manufacturers are doing their bit to make the world safer for our children and grandchildren. We (that’s us, Climate Control Services, and you, the customer) need to do our bit, too. We need to make sure that we are using the right heating, ventilation and air conditioning systems for our homes and offices, and that we’re maintaining them in the best possible way.
We at Climate Control Services are ready to do everything we possibly can. We need you to help us.
