I learned so much about weather conditions-friendly homes during my gap year, and it’s why I got interested in weather conditions advocacy because I could do something after feeling powerless for so long.
At first, I thought that eco-conscious condos were 1s with plants around it.
Still, I got to experience how more than 2 players, including the top guts of the heating industry, have all come together to make modern heating and cooling options that are not carbon-intensive. I got a part-time job working with a building company where they had a heating company subcontract a Heating and Air Conditioning team for each of their homes to ensure they were energy efficient! When I worked with a heating service team in a single of the homes, I learned that heat pumps are more weather conditions-friendly because it uses electricity most of the time, reducing a home’s carbon footprint considerably! For the condo my friend and I were working on, for instance, the heat pump installation was going to provide whole condo heating and also to heat their water, which was a major save for the homeowners and the planet. They also installed new smart control components to maximize help with indoor comfort. It allowed the owners to regulate the rapidly dropping temperatures while saving them the struggle of scheduling heating system maintenance because the HVAC control component app would send out alerts. By the end of my term with the building corporation, my interactions with the heating company experts were more than enough to teach me more about heating than I would ever have had the opportunity to learn. This did not make me want to be a heating company or serviceman. Still, it taught me a whole lot about technological advancements and their part in solving the weather conditions crisis, so I went with environmental engineering for my undergraduate.
