Environmentally Sustainable & Eco-Friendly Ventilation, Drying, Heating & Cooling
In Australia, we use a lot of energy on heating and cooling our houses (40% of our energy consumption to be exact) – so it makes sense to use solar energy as much as possible!
Using renewable and clean energy sources lessens our reliance on fossil fuels and other depleting sources. Over 90 percent of greenhouse gas emissions are derived from fossil fuel combustion! Such combustion produces other air pollutants as well. In Australia, most of our daily activities are generated using coal, gas, oil, petroleum or liquefied petroleum gas, all of which are fossil fuels, with being predominantly used for electricity, heating and powering vehicles.
Renewables, on the other hand, are not carbon-based materials. They are from sources that nature constantly replenishes, such as the sun, wind and water. An important distinction between renewables and fossil fuels is that renewables do not produce greenhouse gases when used to produce electricity. For this reason, renewable sources are often called ‘green energy’. Renewable energy only accounts for 14% of Australia’s electricity mix currently.
How you can Reduce Energy Consumption & Green House Gas Emissions
SolarVenti is 100% solar powered. It doesn’t use any conventional electricity and does not give out any emissions. The SolarVenti system is a completely carbon-free, eco-friendly ventilation solution for a sustainable home. You can ventilate, dry, heat & cool every day while still providing a greener future for generations to come.
Homes account for approximately 30% of Australia’s energy consumption and are also major contributors to greenhouse gases. Using the SolarVenti you can do your part to reduce your overall household greenhouse gas emissions, save on energy usage, and contribute to a brighter future. Recent real estate studies also suggest that one in 10 people are prepared to pay up to 25% more for a sustainable home.
Sustainable business is driven by reducing operation costs, improving business reputation, reducing risk and remaining relevant.
Consumer preferences are moving towards sustainable businesses. Especially Generation Y and Millennial populations. They want to feel good about what they are doing. If you aren’t thinking about sustainability, and your customers are, that’s a financial risk.
Businesses with transparent sustainability plans can also gain a competitive advantage not only with customers, but for attracting talent. Younger consumers no only want to buy from sustainable businesses, they also want to work for businesses where they are finding solutions, not causing problems. They are more likely to feel a sense of pride from working for a sustainable business. It also helps employees connect their own personal values to the values of their employer.
Space heating and cooling are amongst the largest energy costs for businesses. Think about how much energy is going towards heating, cooling & ventilating your office building, manufacturing plant or drying your warehouse to keep products within their shelf life? You might think this is a necessary cost since the OH&S regulations about indoor air temperature, humidity and quality are rather strict. However, with a SolarVenti commercial ventilation system, you will create nothing to your running costs. You are essentially heating, cooling, ventilating and drying for free!
A HEALTHY home, a COOL home in Summer, a WARM home in Winter, a DRY home all year round, a GREEN home and SAVINGS on your electricity bill. What more could you want from your SolarVenti Ventilation System!
