Do Heating & Air Conditioning units contribute to global warming?

Yesterday night, my buddy Ed and I had a torrential downpour of acid rain, however in fact, Ed and I were also under a tornado watch for a few hours… At first, I didn’t realize that things were that wicked outside until I heard the dense pellets of hail hitting my window, and that’s when I discovered that Ed and I were getting more than just normal rain showers.

Anyway, consistently, after an afternoon of rain, the temperature outside is usually much cooler.

And just as expected, the weather outdoors will be a high of 74 this week. In my even-handed opinion, 74 degrees is the perfect temp. It’s neither hot nor chilly & it’s the ideal weather to open the windows to get some fresh air. And of course, when the temperature is 74 degrees, Ed and I wouldn’t be using our a/c as much! Not to mention that if it was 74 degrees all year long, Ed and I particularly wouldn’t need an Heating & Air Conditioning system at all. There would be a lot less chatter about the Heating & Air Conditioning units adding to climate change & global warming. If you didn’t know, based on research by the AC experts, the Heating & Air Conditioning unit creates 1,950 million tons of carbon dioxide every year. And other experts predict that the greenhouse gas from Heating & Air Conditioning will cause a rise in the temperature by 0.5 degrees. This increase might not sound like a lot, however the experts believe that it creates major issues for the planet Earth! While I don’t mind using my Heating & Air Conditioning to remain comfortable inside my home, it would be wonderful if Ed and I didn’t need to use the equipment. Not only would I save currency, although I would also get charming weather all year long.
