The importance of energy conservation becomes more evident every day. With a HVAC system, you can reduce your carbon footprint and help insure that the next generation has a greener world to live in.
Carbon Footprint Defined
While you have heard the term “carbon footprint,” you might not know what it means. A carbon footprint is the numerical representation of the quantity of CO2 produced to support your activities. Burning fossil fuels has been proven to have a negative effect on the environment, and everyone from architects to engineers to you, the homeowner, need to be more aware of human activity’s impact on the earth. By reducing greenhouse gas emissions, you help the environment and can reap economic benefits.
HVAC Equipment’s Role in Carbon Footprints
Almost half of the energy in your home is used for heating and cooling. By replacing outdated HVAC equipment, you can improve the efficiency of heating and cooling system while also reducing your carbon footprint.

HVAC Installations Reducing Carbon Footprint
As ecological sensitivity has heightened, 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 Air Conditioning & Heating, 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.
