Go Green With Carrier HVAC Products
Carrier is a leader in eco-friendly HVAC manufacturing and design.
All too often when attempting to go green, we tend to focus on how our use of a product affects the environment and forget about the impact of the manufacturing process. Carrier has excelled in both areas. Not only have they created highly efficient HVAC products that conserve energy, they have also made a concerted effort to reduce waste at their manufacturing facilities.
Solar City Partnership
One way Carrier is helping the planet and its customers is by partnering with SolarCity to encourage the adoption of solar panels for residential power. Currently, Carrier is offering a promotion where homeowners can get a $1,000 rebate off of a new Carrier product if they agree to install solar panels made by SolarCity for power. With Carrier HVAC equipment already being highly energy efficient, these products should pair well with solar power, especially in sunny southern California.
LEED Gold Certified Manufacturing Facility
Carrier’s commitment to green, energy-saving technology can also be seen at its own manufacturing plants. Recently, Carrier’s newest plant located in Monterrey, Mexico won a LEED Gold Certification from the US Green Building Council. The plant, which has 6 assembly lines manufacturing commercial rooftop units, features the following green accomplishments:
- 89 percent of construction waste is recycled
- 100 percent of materials meet LEED low emission standards
- 97 percent of the building receives LEED recommended levels of daylight
- Water usage was reduced by 96 percent or 1.2 million gallons per year
- Only recycled water is used for toilets and landscaping
- A green cleaning policy means fewer harsh chemicals are used to clean inside the building and maintain the grounds
