ARS Celebrates Earth Day
Employees at American Residential Services are proud of how green we are becoming as an organization as well as a collective group of people sharing this planet. Check out the video above on how corporate employees challenged themselves to "pledge" a greener practice this week in honor of Earth Day!
ARS is determined to offer environmentally-friendly, easy-to-use, and cutting-edge technology, and our partnership with Google Nest is a great example. Learning thermostats and other connected home devices provide homeowners the ability to use less energy and reduce their carbon footprint.
We also offer tankless water heaters, which are extremely energy-efficient, and high-efficiency HVAC systems. By staying in the forefront on technology and the connected home, we can give our community many green alternatives for their households.
ARS also believes in refreshing our workplace surroundings by keeping plants in our office spaces, encouraging employees to use reusable water bottles, and keeping our community clean by recycling and using Earth-friendly alternatives to plastic bags.
