I Think... Al Gore Is Good for HVACR

Al Gore, his movie, and his most recent concerts on seven continents have put the words “global warming” on everybody’s lips. What can the average person do about global climate change? Cut down on toilet paper? Share a shower? Ride a mo-ped to work? Why not control his or her indoor environment without enlarging their carbon footprint.

Some enterprising manufacturers, or contractors for that matter, should be taking advantage of the current consumer “climate” by really getting behind R-410A refrigerants and systems, or high SEER condensing units, or 90 percent furnaces, or dual-fuel systems, or any energy conserving device. Sure they cost significantly more … but consumers can actually do something significant about CO2 emissions and energy consumption.

Whether you line up politically with or against Al, you’ve got to admit he’s an asset for our industry.
