Here’s an interesting statistic regarding the current state of HVAC (Heating, Ventilation and Air Conditioning) in our country today; Approximately half of all energy expenditure within the average American home is spent heating and cooling its various rooms. Here’s another one. In 2008, the United States consumed over 99 quadrillion, or, 99,000,000,000,000,000 BTU. Placing us second in world energy consumption behind China. Even more amazingly, over half of the 99 quadrillion (57 quadrillion to be exact) was classified as “unused”. Chances are, that’s more than what you thought it would be.
