Cox Air Conditioning & Heating is your answer if you are looking for green HVAC systems that are not just environmentally friendly but are also durable. It is common knowledge that ecological sensitivity has heightened, which is why architects, engineers, designers and homeowners have become increasingly aware of the environmental impact of burning fossil fuels. In order to quantify the effects of power and fuel consumption, researchers have created a term called “carbon footprint,” which is a numerical representation of the amount of CO2 produced to support various human activities. Reducing greenhouse gas emissions is more than just environmentally friendly, it’s also economically beneficial home and business.
The Carbon Footprint of HVAC Equipment
According to the U.S. Energy Information Agency, heating and cooling accounts for 48 percent of the energy used in a typical home. In fact, over eight percent of all the electricity generated in the U.S. is used for residential air conditioning at an annual cost of over 15 billion.
Residential fuel and power consumption can be significantly reduced by replacing older equipment and improving the efficiency of the HVAC system. At Cox Heating & Air Conditioning, we provide a variety of environmentally-friendly products and services designed to lower annual heating and cooling costs and reduce your home’s carbon footprint.
