Having a clean Heating, Ventilation, and Air Conditioning (HVAC) System is not just good for the indoor air quality of a home or commercial establishment. It is also good for the environment, because the cleaner an HVAC system, the more efficient it becomes, reducing carbon footprint.
Energy Star for instance is encouraging HVAC owners to maintain a clean HVAC System to help save the environment.
“Now that you have a better idea of the energy use in your home, let’s start saving energy! (If you haven’t been following along, check out last week’s Home Energy Assessment post to get started).

Maintaining and making smart improvements to your home’s heating, ventilating, and air conditioning (HVAC) system can have a big effect on your utility bills—and your comfort.

The invention comes from Be Power Tech, a startup based in Florida, where air conditioning is not just a luxury, but also a lifesaver.”

“The new standards will take effect in 2018, requiring manufacturers build products that are 13 percent more energy efficient than they are today. Five years later, the standard will tighten by another 15 percent. Officials developed the rules after consulting with air conditioning industry organizations and manufacturers, the department said. It’s just the latest efficiency rule released by the department, which has already finalized standards for more than 40 consumer and commercial products.”
