Natural Gas Air Conditioners

    air conditioners

  • An air conditioner (often referred to as AC) is a home appliance, system or mechanism designed to dehumidify and extract heat from an area. The cooling is done using a simple refrigeration cycle.
  • (air conditioner) a system that keeps air cool and dry
  • (Air Conditioner) One or more factory made assemblies which include an evaporator or cooling coil and an electrically driven compressor and condenser combination, and may include a heating function.

    natural gas

  • a fossil fuel in the gaseous state; used for cooking and heating homes
  • Natural Gas was a rock band featuring Peter Wood, Joey Molland, Mark Clarke and Jerry Shirley. They released one album, Natural Gas, produced by Felix Pappalardi, in 1976.
  • Flammable gas, consisting largely of methane and other hydrocarbons, occurring naturally underground (often in association with petroleum) and used as fuel
  • Natural gas is a gas consisting primarily of methane, typically with 0-20% higher hydrocarbons (primarily ethane). It is found associated with other fossil fuels, in coal beds, as methane clathrates, and is created by methanogenic organisms in marshes, bogs, and landfills.

Natural Gas in the U.S. Economy: Opportunities for Growth
Natural Gas in the U.S. Economy: Opportunities for Growth
Due to the growth in natural gas production, primarily from shale gas, the United States is benefitting from some of the lowest prices for natural gas in the world and faces the question of how to best use this resource.

Different segments of the U.S. economy have different perspectives on the role natural gas can play. Suppliers, which have become the victims of their own production success, are facing low prices that are forecast to remain low. Some companies that have traditionally produced only natural gas have even turned their attention to oil in order to improve their financial situation. Smaller companies are having a difficult time continuing operations and larger companies, including international companies, have bought into many shale gas assets. Prices have remained low even as consumption has increased, in part, because producers have raised production to meet the demand and because companies have improved efficiency and extraction techniques. Some companies, many with large production operations, have applied for permits to export natural gas. This has raised concerns from consumers of natural gas that domestic prices will rise. The debate regarding exports is ongoing.

Industries that consume natural gas have seen input costs drop, and some have heralded low natural gas prices as the impetus for a manufacturing revolution in the United States. Some companies have begun to make major investments to take advantage of the low natural gas prices, particularly in petrochemicals. Other companies are waiting to see if prices will remain low long enough to warrant major investments in new facilities. Meanwhile, the electric power sector has already seen a transition from coal-fired generation to natural gas. Low natural gas prices are also putting pressure on renewable sources of power generation. However, increases in demand will put upward pressure on natural gas prices.

The transportation sector, the one part of the economy vulnerable to foreign energy supplies, is beginning to explore ways to use more natural gas. Transportation makes up less than 1% of U.S. natural gas consumption and would require billions of dollars in investment to increase that share significantly.

All of the change that has taken place so far has occurred despite environmental concerns and regulatory developments at the state and federal level that might curtail production. Natural gas is a fossil fuel that produces various pollutants, some more than other fossil fuels and some less. Methane, the major component of natural gas, is also a potent greenhouse gas when released without burning. Other environmental concerns focus on water use and disposal in hydraulic fracturing to extract natural gas from shale formations.

Over the next five years, many of the issues being debated now may be decided. The industry and market are adapting to the newly found supplies and the concerns associated with them, as well as integrating more natural gas into the economy. There are many evolving issues some of which Congress can influence directly because of statutes and some indirectly. On the demand side, legislation has been introduced regarding exports of liquefied natural gas and alternative fuels for vehicles. There has been other legislation related to environmental regulations of natural gas.

What ever may or may not be true, one thing I acknowledge is the absolute fact that trees are the real air-conditioners of the planet. They clean the air of pollutants in many forms. They also need carbon , in order to survive … indisputable fact. Eradicate carbon from the planet’s atmosphere and the trees will die. When that happens, so will all life forms as we know it. Yet, we here are paying dearly, by way of an added carbon tax on top of everything sold and produced and built … so we can eliminate carbon from the air. Go figure!
Dine out … the restaurant pays a carbon tax for cooking …passes it on to you.
Use gas or electricity at home? There is now a carbon tax on it.
Build a brick wall? The brick manufacturers pay a carbon tax … passes it on to you.
The cement manufacturer pays a carbon tax . passes it on to you.
Buy a vehicle that has been built here and an extra carbon tax is incorporated.
Turn the tap on for water, the local councils now pay a carbon tax .. passed to you.
Buy meat from the supermarket … abattoirs pay a carbon tax .. passed on to you.
Supermarkets pay a carbon tax for refrigeration … passes it on to you.
Everything has added carbon tax … this is not pretty.

I only wonder what the situation would have been, were we around at a time when there were only two Super Continents on the earth. Then they started drifting apart and breaking up. Moving further and further away from each other, creating many continents and many more individual islands Who would the government of day blamed? Eh!

The earth has gone from warming to cooling and vice a versa since time immemorial.
Who would they have blamed for the seven different Ice Ages that the earth has gone through.
The Australian Labor Government think they can stop this natural changing by taxing everyone. Makes me wonder on the stupidity of it all and the fact that no Labor government here has ever controlled their spending…… of OUR money.

Gas Leak

Gas Leak
My office was evacuated today. I went in one door, but before I made it to my desk, was ushered out another due to a strong natural gas odor. Apparently, there were some workmen on the roof repairing our air conditioner/heating system and they weren’t too careful about the natural gas lines. The fumes were sucked into the ventilation and the building was evacuated, fire department called and after standing outside in freezing temps for 1/2 an hour, we were all allowed back inside.

They sent three units: Engine 13, Ladder 7, and Battalion Chief 5.

You’ve got to admire a man who points with his axe handle.
