Air Control Is Committed to Sustainability

In 2019, total end-use energy consumption by the U.S. residential and commercial sectors was more than 21 quadrillion British thermal units — equal to 28% of the nation’s total end-use energy consumption. What’s more, 40% of our carbon emissions result from heating, cooling, and hot water demand — a number that has been influenced by (among other things) the ever-burgeoning size of American homes.

And at an average of 35% of your total energy consumption, your home or commercial building’s heating, ventilation, and air conditioning system is — by far — your largest energy consumer. In the residential sector alone, the U.S. Energy Information Agency estimates that heating and cooling account for 48% of the energy used by the average home.

This also makes it your largest contributor to your structure’s carbon footprint. Read on to find out how you can help sustain our environment — for yourself and generations to come.
