Get Green Screened

Matthew Stewart - Sunday, February 10, 2013

Did you know that 72 Degrees Air Conditioning & Heating is Green Screened? What does it even mean to be Green Screened? And why is that important?

Well, it’s primarily important because the decisions that we make about energy today will affect our world tomorrow. North America’s population has doubled throughout the past 50 years, and with it the need for energy. When the population should be conserving energy, they are still wasting 30-50% of available energy. We have a responsibility to take a look at how much energy we use on a daily basis and find ways to lower that. Shouldn’t an air conditioning and heating company value energy efficiency?

72 Degrees certainly does by being committed to the “green” movement. They educate people about why having a “green” heating and cooling system is good for the environment. They let homeowners know about ways to make their home more energy efficient. They also proactively work to preserve the environment through conserving and recycling.

A Green Screened company sets an example by going “green” in their own actions as well. Here are a few tips for going “green” in your own home:

  • Regularly change your filters
  • Keep air registers open
  • Open a window
  • Use ceiling fans instead of turning on the A/C
  • Use the sun to your advantage
  • Keep your attic properly ventilated

These suggestions, among others, will get you on your way to a healthier, greener home.
