The Israeli company behind a smart air conditioner device claims it prevented 78,813 gross tons of carbon dioxide emissions last year.
Sensibo allows users to remotely set timers, control fan speeds and adjust the temperature of all units in their home, to reduce energy consumption and save money.
The company’s newly-released climate impact summary for 2022 says the carbon emissions it prevented are equivalent to taking 15,376 gas-powered vehicles off the road for a year.
It also says its devices have saved 212 gigawatts of energy, which is equal to almost 17 million gallons of gasoline.
Heating and cooling devices account for a third of global energy consumption. Sensibo says 37 per cent of users forget to turn off their air conditioner at least once a week.
There are about 1.5 billion air conditioners and heat pumps globally today and there could be over 5 billion by 2050.
“For 10 years, we have worked hard to promote our vision of Beyond Air Con, investing heavily in research and development, helping more than 200,000 homes save energy and the climate worldwide”, said Ran Roth, CEO and Co-Founder of Sensibo.
“Our systems, which help save up to 40 per cent on energy bills’ heating and cooling line items, offer an efficient solution to dealing with some of the world’s biggest challenges: climate change, energy and air quality.”
Sensibo was founded in 2013. It is based in Ramat Gan, central Israel and has an office in California, USA.
