3 Reasons to Teach Children about HVAC and Energy Efficiency

3 Reasons to Teach Children about HVAC and Energy Efficiency

Teaching children early about using HVAC systems wisely has a lifetime payoff that helps them and the planet. As the largest single energy user in homes and buildings, it’s important that children learn early about saving energy at home.

1. Energy Efficiency

Children learn by example, so it’s important to practice habits like keeping exterior doors closed when the air conditioner is running, and making sure all the windows are tightly closed and locked. If their bedrooms get hot during the day because of sunny windows, show them how to close the curtains or the blinds to lower the heat gain.

2. Saving Energy

Although the air conditioner is the biggest energy user in the summer, teaching children to save energy with the other appliances and devices will make them conscientious energy consumers. Ask them to:

When you practice these habits, there’s a far greater chance that your children will too.

3. Maintenance

Once they’re old enough to be responsible, tell them to:

Blocked airflow through the condenser or the ductwork lowers the efficiency of the equipment and could result in a mechanical problem with the HVAC system.

Teaching children to care for appliances helps them learn about energy efficiency and energy savings.
