February 27 is International Polar Bear Day! Polar Bear Air Conditioning & Heating is teaming up with Polar Bears International to encourage the local community to take the #ThermostatChallenge. Turn down your thermostat a degree or two and together we’ll make a big difference.

According to The Green Book, if every household in the U.S. adjusted their thermostat by one degree, it would save the amount of energy Iowa uses in one year. Other ways to significantly reduce CO2 emissions include using programmable thermostats and choosing high efficiency cooling and heating systems. Polar Bear Air Conditioning & Heating is a DC Sustainable Energy Utility (DCSEU) participating contractor, who can help you choose the most efficient HVAC system that will be the best fit for your home.

Taking the #ThermostatChallenge? Like Polar Bear Air Conditioning & Heating on Facebook, and they will donate $5 to Polar Bears International for every “like” received in February. Don’t forget to Tweet #ThermostatChallenge to tell your friends and Polar Bears International that you are participating. Let’s make a difference together!
