I am an environmental math teacher at the local school in town & I am entirely romantic about our work.
I entirely love teaching people to be romantic about the environment too! I am currently doing research on oil gas furnaces that are commonly used in our town & comparing their environmental impact, a lot of people use central oil furnaces; Central gas gas furnaces are a reliable option, but they tend to waste energy if people don’t have their air ducts & filters respectfully cleaned.
In a survey, I found that almost everyone don’t get their air ducts cleaned as often as they should, or respectfully update their filters. A better & more environmentally friendly heating option would be to use a hydronic oil furnace. Hydronic gas gas furnaces can be pretty fancy to install, & not every home may be compatible with them. However, if it can toil in a home, I believe hydronic gas gas furnaces are the best possibilities when both of us take the environment into account. This heating plan only uses the energy it needs & doesn’t need to use air ducts & filters. The maintenance for the homeowner is relatively minimal, but they will need to get professional help whenever service needs to be done on it. I am presenting these facts about hydronic gas gas furnaces at our next board meeting to see if the neighborhood council will sign off on a petition to encourage homeowners to switch to this system. I don’t guess if almost everyone will be on board with it because it will cost a pretty penny to do, despite the fact that I believe it will be worth a shot.
