Why we need to actively work to reduce our carbon footprint

At Equilibrium Air Conditioning, we believe in sustainable practices that will reduce our carbon footprint, and preserve our beautiful planet for generations to come. We believe commercial industries have an obligation to the environment, which is why we are proud to partner with Green Building Council Australia, and consistently work towards Ecological Sustainable Development (ESD) principles. All our projects are designed and constructed with sustainability factored in. We have Green Star accreditation, ensuring we remain current on the latest innovations and technology pertaining to our industry.
If the carbon footprint left behind by your business is not something you’ve previously given much thought to, now is the time to make some changes. What, exactly, is your carbon footprint? It’s the amount of greenhouse gas you/your business is personally responsible for. Greenhouse gases are directly responsible for global warming and climate change. At Equilibrium, all project managers are held responsible for ensuring that each project is assessed for reduction in energy consumption and that waste is minimised. This allows us to significantly decrease the carbon footprint resulting from building our HVAC systems.
The reality is, there’s a lot of everyday activities that increase greenhouse gases. For example, cooking our food and even breathing will release small amounts in to the air each day. Your food, clothing, transport and entertainment choices within your personal life also have great impact on our environment. These can all be managed to reduce your personal footprint, but what can commercial entities do to reduce theirs? It is a known fact that corporations make higher contributions to C02 emissions entering our atmosphere each day/year. However, if we are going to try and combat global warming and climate change, businesses need to do what they can to respect our environment and reduce this effect.
Not only is sustainability a moral obligation for businesses, there are legal obligations as well. For detailed information on the current Australian Environmental legislation, licences and permits, read here. The pressure to make changes to business practice will only continue as the problem becomes more and more imperative to address. Some businesses have even found that employing environmentally friendly practices, such as utilising alternative energy sources, has even reduced production and operating costs. There is much to look forward to when it comes to embracing “green” business practices.
Essentially, if we don’t start to actively reduce our carbon footprint soon, climate change will one day become disastrous. Maybe not in our own lifetime, but future generations will have live with the consequences of our actions. Experts predict that eventually, Earth’s temperature will continue to rise and become uncontrollable. Our ozone layer will then be in danger of vanishing, at which point we have no protection from harmful UV sun rays. This will make Earth virtually uninhabitable. Ice in Antarctica will melt, resulting in rising sea levels and a worldwide flood. Sounds like a Hollywood blockbuster, doesn’t it? As you can imagine, it’s pretty bleak.
The good news is, it isn’t too late to start focusing on sustainability and reducing our carbon footprint. It’s not too late to prioritise the environment, and even though it takes some effort, it can be done. If you’d like to know more about our own efforts to reduce the carbon footprint of our HVAC productions, or if you’d like to invest in this area using a company that is Green Star Certified, please contact our friendly team on (02) 9439 4822.

Is there a link between office temperature comfort and productivity?

Being in the commercial air conditioning business, it’s our job to ensure efficient, high-quality solutions are engineered for each of our clients. They rely on this effective temperature control for many things, but did you know that staff productivity is one of them?  Think about it for a moment… if it’s 30 degrees Celsius in an office, do you feel like working- or walking out and making a beeline for the beach?
For many years, it was common belief that the cooler the room temperature, the better office productivity. Scientific research conducted in Helsinki in 2006 even backed up this theory, however, a further study has surfaced and contradicted the verdict. Cornell University’s ergonomics study on office temperature revealed that “chilly workers” make more errors, whereas, workers in warm conditions had far fewer typing errors and significantly higher typing output.
While Helsinki concluded optimal office temperature to be 22 degrees Celsius, Cornell suggested a more “balmy” 25, as this was the point at which mistakes fell and output rose. As an added bonus, the study also found that warmer office climates produced warmer interpersonal communications between employees. Unsurprisingly, warmth is associated with feelings of affection, kindness and respect, and this was reflected in the way staff would interact.
Whatever temperature level you believe is optimal within your own personal office environment, it’s a fact that personal comfort among employees facilitates the best conditions for office productivity. Another factor to consider is humidity, which has a universally negative impact on office morale. In order to maintain superior air quality, minimal humidity and a consistent temperature, you’re going to need air conditioning solutions that are tailor designed to your office size and requirements.
At Equilibrium, we specialise in designing, installing and servicing climate control systems for commercial developments. We find the best solution for projects and we’re fully automated with computer aided estimating, design, drafting and management control. Our portfolio includes industries such as; healthcare, education, retail and industrial construct. All industries involving extensive amounts of employees and requiring top performance from them at all times.
If your commercial premises needs new or updated air conditioning solutions, don’t hesitate to contact our team on (02) 9439 4822.

What is the Green Building Council of Australia- It’s not easy being green, but we can.

At Equilibrium Air Conditioning, we are committed to sustainability and looking out for future generations by being environmentally responsible. This is a key consideration in the design and construct of all our projects. We are proud to be members of the Green Building Council of Australia and we’re actively working towards Ecological Sustainable Development (ESD) principles.
What is the Green Building Council of Australia? The GBCA is comprised of more than 600 individual companies with an annual turnover collectively exceeding $40 billion. This extensive group of companies employs over 50,000 staff across Australia.  The industries represented within GBCA is varied and includes; major developers, banks, superannuation funds, professional services firms, product manufacturers, retailers and suppliers. GBCA also includes a number of local and state government departments and land organisations, as well as having 18 university members.
Chief Executive, Romilly Madew, has said of the work done by GBCA, “We are proud to work collaboratively across government and industry to deliver healthier, more productive, sustainable and resilient places for people.”
In 2016, a new strategy was released by GBCA focusing on leading a carbon positive industry. This new strategic plan supports the vision of providing a healthy, resilient and progressive place for people and the natural environment. The aim is to lead the sustainable transformation of the built environment by achieving the four goals below:

PLANET: Drive a carbon positive industry
PEOPLE: Foster liveable and sustainable communities and cities
INDUSTRY: Broaden market transformation
REGION: Increase regional influence

Equilibrium Air Conditioning are proud to partner with an organisation that is pioneering the way to a healthier future for our planet. We actively promote the use of sustainable solutions and enthusiastically seek alliances with like-minded suppliers and industry groups. Our project managers are made responsible for guaranteeing each project is completed with optimal reductions in energy consumption and waste in mind, and that a minimal carbon footprint is made during the building and production of HVAC systems. It’s not easy being green, but it can be done. With teamwork and cooperation, planning and care, we can reduce human impact on the Earth’s environment and ensure it stays beautiful for generations to come.
