Heating and Refrigeration Institute, in collaboration with the Association of
Home Appliance Manufacturers, the Edison Electric Institute, the U.S. Energy
Association and North American Technician Excellence, has launched the 2 Degree
Pledge initiative to help homeowners achieve lower energy bills through greater
energy efficiency. Consumers can sign up at www.2degreepledge.org

includes tools and calculators to help homeowners determine if an upgrade to a
more efficient heating or cooling system makes sense for them.
