Melbourne, Australia, May 06, 2011 --(PR.com
)-- Your carbon footprint is the total amount of greenhouse gas emissions caused by you as an individual, a company or organisation, or a product. Greenhouse gases contribute to climate change and can be emitted from a wide variety of sources, from transport to the production and use of food, fuels, manufactured products, roads, buildings, and much more. One’s carbon footprint is expressed in terms of the amount of carbon dioxide being emitted.
An Australian study conducted in 2008 showed that 55% of Australians believed that global warming is one of the most important issues facing the world today. While global warming and specifically climate change are very serious issues, if you think you’re powerless in the face of climate change, think again. Everyone can do something to help save the planet, and one of the easiest yet most powerful things you can do is reduce your carbon footprint. What’s the first thing you can do? Buy energy efficient appliances.
While the name Russell’s Lifestyle is relatively new, the Russell family has been trading for over 40 years and currently operating in the Melbourne suburbs of Croydon and Ferntree Gully. Their goal as a company is to promote clean and efficient heating and cooling products, and to give you the highest level of customer service with timely, quality installations.
Russell’s Lifestyle is not only the experts for your ducted heating and air conditioning needs, but also for all your hot water ones. Russell’s Lifestyle worked closely with Origin Energy before Origin closed their business. These days Russell’s trades under its own name, and continues in Origin’s footsteps as pioneers in the supply and installation of hot water products. Russell’s Lifestyle has seen in the past 18 months, a surge in solar products for water heating. Most people who are aware that sun-powered water heating tends to cost more, don’t mind paying extra for the long term gain and its benefits for the environment and the planet.
Remember the great advance to running a sun-powered water heating system: the only ongoing outlay is the maintenance of your solar equipment: solar and wind energy are free. In the face of energy becoming more expensive and with that trend set to continue into the future, even small changes like this means the reduction of your carbon use will have considerable impact on the planet.
Lorraine Jones from Russell’s Lifestyle says, “While some consumers may be aware that there have been enormous strides in the energy efficient appliances market, Russell’s Lifestyle actively creates awareness on its showroom floors that there are energy efficient appliances available to suit the budgets of everyone.”
“With the likelihood of energy becoming more expensive in the future, even small changes made to reduce energy consumption will benefit the consumer and the planet.”
So among all of the businesses in Melbourne offering heating and cooling supplies, what sets Russell’s Lifestyle apart? Russell’s offer timely and quality installations on all the products they sell. They also offer on-site inspections and easy pay option plans.
