How is HVAC industry addressing climate change and sustainability?
Climate change is one of the major issues which we are facing nowadays, and it plays a significant role in our daily lives. The main reason for the rising sea levels is the constant changes that are occurring in the climate. Apart from this, the Glaciers are also melting at a significant rate. We all can notice the increase in the global temperature.
Due to all these reasons, natural calamities such as earthquakes, storms, floods, heavy rain, acid rain, and many more are occurring faster.
All these things are occurring majorly due to the actions that we do and the lifestyle that we are following, which is considered to be the major cause of global warming that is the increase in the global temperature.
Everyone needs to play an essential role in making the planet sustainable before it’s too late and this can be achieved if we sincerely bring a change in our daily activities and lifestyle. However, many of us would be knowing that the major cause of the increase in global warming is the high use of Air Conditioners.
Air Conditioning and Global Warming:
Earth is becoming warmer each day. About 75% of the population is at risk due to global warming.
As we know the use of Air conditioners plays a significant role in increasing global warming. Nearly 90% of Americans use air conditioners for their own beneficial purposes. The main reason why it increases the temperature of the Earth is the gases that it releases in the air.
Air Conditioning Affect Climate Change
As the day becomes hotter, we depend more on air conditioners. Due to which the amount of carbon dioxide is increasing and affecting the change in the climate of Earth.
According to a recent report given by the United Nations, a ban on Hydrofluorocarbons could help in reducing global warming.
However, HVAC systems are environmentally friendly and help to prevent climate change, and can be a better option to secure our future.
HVAC technology and Climate change
The main motive of the HVAC industry is to develop such cooling and heating systems that do not give a huge impact on climate. This will make sure that the advancements and modernization of these systems give benefits to people and to the environment as well so that the climate of the planet is not affected.
Innovative HVAC Technologies
The HVAC industry is focusing more and more on sustainable development technology to make its contribution to the environment.
The main reason behind the invention of sustainable HVAC technology is to utilize renewable sources of energy and to reduce the impact of heating and cooling activities on the environment.
Sustainable development to Enhance the Efficiency of HVAC
With the help of new advanced HVAC technology, the old units are replaced with the latest sustainable features, i.e., various fan speeds, ventilation, automated capabilities, and smart controls. Also, they also result in energy savings of around 25%.
Heating and Cooling Systems
HVAC industries are manufacturing eco-friendly systems. Also, the seasonal energy efficiency ratios are very much better in rating as compared to air conditioners. If the seasonal energy efficiency ratio of your system is higher, then the system is much more energy-efficient.
The HVAC systems are designed to save energy without sacrificing the features of the system. The certified products include geothermal heat pumps, ductless heating and cooling, heat pumps, furnaces, boilers, smart thermostats, ventilation fans.
Various Ducts such as GI Duct, FRP Duct, PP Duct, SS Duct and scrubber such as FRP scrubber, PP scrubber, and many other new inventions are used in HVAC technology, which is energy efficient and does not harm the environment.
Innovations in HVAC systems
There have been various innovations in the HVAC industry, such as smart AC controllers and programmable thermostats, which help to reduce the effect of climate change. The ductless features of the HVAC systems are not only convenient in use but also help in saving energy.
Using your smartphones, you can control your Smart controllers and thermostats from anywhere that allows you to control heating and cooling. Moreover, they offer numerous other features that can greatly help save energy which includes intelligent triggers.
HVAC Technology Is Lowering Environmental Impact
Harmful emissions can be controlled by the minimum use of non-renewable energy. Moreover, introducing environmentally HVAC technology helps to protect the environment.
Harmful greenhouse gases can be produced in the environment by burning of fossil fuels. But, HVAC technology is fully dependent on using only renewable sources of energy which helps to minimize the release of harmful gases.
Individual Efforts to Tackle Climate Change
There are very useful measures taken by HVAC technology to tackle the problem of climate change. We also need to be active to protect the environment and take preventive measures on our part. Everyone has their own role to play in fighting this problem of climate change. For example, you can plant more trees around your house, which will make your home energy-efficient. There should be minimum usage of appliances that are causing an effect on the environment.
It is high time for all of us to think about the environment as our environment is depleting at a faster rate. The main reason behind this is due to our lifestyle and the process that we use in our day-to-day life.
But our small change can bring a larger change to our environment. We should be focusing on using environmentally friendly things in place of polluting.
