The Climate Crisis.
According to the SEAI report from 2021, energy used for heat increased by 3.2% in 2020, and CO2 emissions increased by 2.6%. The residential sector in Ireland is responsible for 53% of CO2 emissions from heating. Trends show that our carbon footprint is once again rising after slight decline during the pandemic.
How can HubController help?
The HubController’s Automatic Energy Reduction Technology reduces the amount of energy you use for space heating by 36.63%. That’s on average 1.77 tonnes of CO2 per household per year.
In fact, since the introduction of AER Technology in 2019, the HubControllers installed in Irish homes managed to save:
To put it into perspective, that equates to:
Why so much talk about Carbon Emissions?
It might have a bad name, but the natural carbon cycle of CO2 release and absorption into the earth is vital to the continued balance of our life supporting ecosystem.
The problem is, we produce extreme excesses of carbon emissions and other greenhouse gasses through human activities.
These gasses trap radiation and heat in our atmosphere, provoking global warming.
Also partly due to massive deforestation: our trees, plants, and oceans combined can’t absorb enough CO2 to fix this disastrous imbalance.
How Climate Change Affects You
Give up the dream, global warming won’t turn Ireland into Ibiza! Our rain will become more unpredictable and some areas will become prone to flooding!
Most households already deal with higher carbon taxes and increasing energy prices.
Soon we can expect fundamental changes in home heating systems, higher transport taxes and tangible fuel poverty to plunge more families into debt and leave children and vulnerable
adults cold in winter.
We need Mass Action
We know what you’re thinking… but how can one person really help? It’s time to start working together. That’s why, at Hub Controller, we’re making real carbon reduction accessible to everyone. By saving energy, time and money, our HubCommunity are collectively fighting climate change on a scale never before seen in Ireland.
How HubController Helps
Ireland is certainly making progress, but sustainable change needs a monumental shift in community behaviour.
By joining our growing HubCommunity,
you will save 1.77 tonne of CO2e emissions and on average €534 a year according to current gas standard rates!
Alone, it might seem hard to make a difference, but together we can fight for a cleaner tomorrow.
Without sacrificing today.
