Earth Day is April 22nd. This is the day that people from countries all across the globe will recognize that, collectively, we can all do our part to grow a healthier, more efficient and sustainable world.
The first Earth Day was petitioned by Senator Gaylord Nelson of Wisconsin and declared in 1970. Worried that issues as important as our environment were not being addressed in politics or by the media, he conceived this day to bring recognition to the careless attitudes towards it.
Small Changes in HVAC Can Have a Big Impact on Energy Savings
More than 50% of our combined energy use comes from HVAC systems. Poorly maintained or outdated HVAC accounts for the greatest amount of wasted energy in the world. The Energy Alliance Group reports that every year in our country alone, 30% of the $200 billion spent on commercial utility bills is wasted through inefficient heating and cooling systems.* To put this in perspective…what we waste in a single year is enough to heat and cool a small country for lifetime. And, that doesn’t even include residential systems.
Federal and state regulations have demanded manufacturers of HVAC systems design them to operate at higher efficiencies. And, they have answered that call! Couple that with automated system controls – like programmable, smart and learning thermostats – and these efficiencies will significantly contribute to creating a better environment.
Though some changes may seem slight at first, when we cooperate collectively, the results can be huge. Jackson Systems celebrates Earth Day with a vow to our contractor customers to continue to do our part by offering the innovative products that will help them reduce the environmental impact their customers make.
This week, in recognition of Earth Day, Jackson System talks about two great thermostats that are proven to save energy. Both are the only thermostats endorsed by Energy Star as the most efficient controls for residential energy efficiency.
