With increasingly hot summers, the sale of air conditioners continues to increase every year. Alas, this device is very polluting and energy consuming. Approaches and ideas are emerging to enable consumers to equip themselves with air conditioning while remaining eco-responsible.
Let’s consume differently while equipping ourselves with air conditioning
Inquire via the toll-free number of Eni, Enercoop, EDF, etc.
The first to be concerned by consumption issues are of course the energy suppliers. Their experts are in the best position to provide you with solutions, whether it is to find an adequate and eco-responsible offer or to get an opinion on an alternative installation that will reduce the consumption of your air conditioning. These tips are often free for everyone, so don’t miss out on them. For example, for Eni, the customer service contact is a toll-free number. To call Eni’s toll-free number, go to this page.
Reduce your consumption with a low-cost gas contract
The main concerns of an air conditioning system are its greenhouse gas emissions and its high energy consumption. For owners of a reversible gas heat pump as an air cooler in summer, it is possible to alleviate this problem by opting for a low-cost gas contract with compensation for your carbon emissions and blocking the rise in rates over 2 or 3 years. Leaders in economic biogas include :
- Total Direct Energy
By subscribing to an inexpensive gas subscription, you must ensure that it is eco-responsible in order to reduce the energy footprint of your home and your air conditioning. Biomethane comes from the heat and bacterial fermentation of the waste we discard, producing an easy and inexpensive biogas. This makes it a viable alternative when you have energy-intensive air conditioning.
Alternative solutions and reflexes to follow
The majority of households opt for a single-piece electric air conditioner, which is by far the most energy-guzzling. It is important to know that an air conditioner can generate a consumption of 2000 KWh, resulting in a 20 to 25% increase in your bill. For the sake of the environment and your finances, it’s important to adopt a greener attitude before buying your appliance.
Prefer machines with an energy classification A, with a power adapted to your room (between 100 and 130 W/m²). In addition, a temperature 5 degrees lower outside is more than sufficient. Eventually, alternate with a fan. Above all, insulate yourself from the heat by keeping the windows and shutters closed, this will keep the house cool.
If you’re willing to invest a little money, there are other ways to equip yourself with air conditioning while remaining eco-responsible. In fact, solar air conditioners produce cold by vortex effect, evaporation or absorption of external rays without using refrigerant (highly polluting). In another style, air fresheners use the humidity in the air to make it cooler. The installation of a reversible heat pump is also a good solution, as mentioned earlier in the article.
