Until 2016, the United States was the largest consumer of energy in the world. China has since taken the number one spot, but this doesn’t mask the fact that the country’s energy efficiency efforts have much room for improvement. In fact, 18% of emissions in the country are from residential consumption alone.
That’s why, as a contribution to the growing energy efficiency movement, All Climate Cooling and Heating has taken steps to help homeowners improve their home’s consumption, and here are just a few ways how.
Why Go Green?
Turning your home into an energy-efficient and environmentally friendly place is not particularly effortless, and can easily cost you hundreds if not thousands of dollars. So why should you do it? The biggest reason would be to contribute to lessening the effects of climate change on the planet. Additionally, many states in the country also offer tax rebates, breaks, and other incentives for homes that make the switch. All things considered, energy-efficient cooling and heating systems can often pay for themselves after a few years.
