Emphasizing that the production and use of air conditioning devices affect our planet and our purse, especially energy consumption, Dr. Filiz Karaosmanoğlu said, “As we consume energy, greenhouse gases that warm our world and cause climate crisis spread, while our carbon footprint increases, our electricity bill also rises. Let’s not change our climate by heating our world for the climate we prefer. Let’s not cause a climate crisis. Let’s make the right choices for climate-friendly air conditioning.”
