Refrigerants and cooling agents are in high demand in a growing desert economy but are also known to be harmful greenhouse gases (GHGs). While air conditioning and refrigeration make life comfortable, we need to understand that these ozone-depleting, heat-trapping gases contribute to global warming and climate change.

How can you help reduce GHG emissions starting in your own home?

  1. Regularly clean and maintain air conditioners in your home.
  2. Turn ACs off in the hottest part of the day.
  3. Set the temperature of home ACs to 25C.
  4. All of the above.
  5. None of the above.
