Modern Technology Helps UCSD to Meet Energy Goals

It seems that new tech innovations are everywhere. From self-driving cars, to wireless thermostats, to carpeting that will not stain, technology has come a long way. In a recent case study we came upon, we learned how the University of California, San Diego used high-tech thermostats to reduce its energy consumption. Here is a bit of the study:

?Wireless pneumatic thermostats help UCSD reach sustainability goals by reducing greenhouse gas emissions by 538 tons/year CASE STUDY SNAPSHOT U.C. San Diego reduced electricity use in McGill-Mandler Hall by 27% and natural gas use by 51% using the Cypress Wireless Pneumatic Thermostat (WPT) to better control their HVAC system. Building use: Multi-story building with a mixture of research labs, offices and classrooms.?


With advances such as this, who knows where we will be in another decade. For now, however, homeowners have their own high-tech advances in flooring, namely the incredible SmartStrand? Naturals by Mohawk Industries. In the past, it was common for homeowners to find stains on their carpeting. These stains often came about because of dropped liquids or foods. Homes that had carpeting and active kids or pets were just about guaranteed to have stained carpets. Now, there is something you can do about that.

Mohawk Industries has developed a remarkable new line of carpeting called SmartStrand. This new line of carpeting is different than any other carpeting you may have seen in the past. It is considered by experts to be one of the very best flooring systems in terms of stain resistance. The SmartStrand line of carpeting can resist staining, because its unique formula is processed into the individual fibers. Other brands simply spray their chemical onto the fibers, which means it can lose its resistance to staining over time or through wet cleaning. Not so with SmartStrand Naturals.

There are many more benefits to Mohawk's new line of carpeting, and the best way to learn about them is to visit with Metro Flooring in San Diego and let us show, in person, just how remarkable the new SmartStrand Natural carpeting truly is, and why you will fall in love with it as soon as you see it.
