HVAC units contribute to global warming

Yesterday evening, we had a torrential downpour of rain.

In fact, we were under a tornado watch for a few hours.

At first, I didn’t realize that things were that bad outside until I heard the pellets of hail hitting my window. That’s when I discovered that we were getting more than just normal rain showers. Anyway, typically, after a day of rain, the temperature outside is usually much cooler. And just as expected, the weather outside will be a high of 75 today. In my honest opinion, 75 degrees is the perfect temperature. It’s neither hot nor cold and it’s the ideal weather to open the windows to get some fresh air. And of course, when the temperature is 75 degrees, we wouldn’t be using our air conditioning as much. Not to mention that if it was 75 degrees all year long, we probably wouldn’t need an HVAC system at all. There would probably be less chatter about the HVAC units contributing to climate change and global warming. If you didn’t know, based on research by the experts, the HVAC unit creates 1,950 million tons of carbon dioxide each year. And other experts predict that the greenhouse gasses from the HVAC will cause a rise in the temperature by 0.5 degrees. That increase might not sound like a lot, but the experts believe that it creates major issues for the planet. While I don’t mind using my HVAC to remain comfortable inside my home, it would be great if we didn’t need to use the equipment. Not only would I save money, but I would also have beautiful weather all year long.
