As part of the continuing commitment to support the community and improve its already environmentally friendly operations, Carleton Refrigeration, Heating and Air Conditioning Inc. will be planting 1,302 young, vigorous, native-Canadian trees in Ottawa. The company is the newest participant in Rideau Valley Conservation Foundation’s (RVCF) Carbon Neutral Program.

Carleton Refrigeration, Heating and Air Conditioning is working with RVCF to calculate the amount of carbon emissions they produce (in tonnes of carbon dioxide) and then convert that into the number of trees to be planted to offset (or absorb) the carbon the company produces in their day-to-day operations.

Each of Carleton Refrigeration, Heating and Air Conditioning’s trees is a little environmental cleaning station producing better air, cleaner water, more wildlife habitat, noise and wind buffers, increased forest cover. Research shows that lives are improved by trees, hospital recovery times are shortened and other common problems, such as stress and attention deficit disorder, become more manageable when we are in regular contact with trees and green spaces.

Carleton Refrigeration, Heating and Air Conditioning joins a number of distinguished local companies, and many community and family events around town taking a bite out of carbon emissions and creating cleaner air for the residents of this area.

Carleton Refrigeration, Heating and Air Conditioning Ltd. is a locally owned and operated family business since 1973. Their team of dedicated professionals pride themselves on their award-winning commitment to excellence in customer service. They sell and install quality furnace and air conditioning equipment produced by superior quality manufacturers, and backed up by some of the best warranty programs in the industry.

Rideau Valley Conservation Foundation is a registered environmental charity working to improve the lands and waters of the Rideau River right here at home in Eastern Ontario. They are proud to be associated with Carleton Refrigeration, Heating and Air Conditioning Inc.
