Anco Products Inc. Joins EPA Campaign

April 27, 2009 - Anco Products Inc. today announced that they have joined the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency's (EPA) Change the World, Start with ENERGY STAR® campaign to encourage Michiana to reduce energy use in their home.

Anco Products Inc. has joined with millions of Americans in the fight against global warming by encouraging individual actions that can make a big difference in reducing energy bills and greenhouse gas emissions. Anco Products is a leading provider of flexible air ducts and connectors, TextraFINE® Insulation, Formaldehyde-Free TextraSOFT™, Industrial Resilient Blanket, insulation for metal and post frame buildings and other commercial and residential insulation.

The ENERGY STAR® Pledge encourages Americans to:

  • Change light bulbs to those that have earned the ENERGY STAR®
  • Use a programmable thermostat to save energy while asleep or away from home
  • Enable power management settings on computers and monitors so they go into "sleep mode" when away or not in use
  • Make their next purchase an ENERGY STAR® qualified product, such as home electronics, office products, and/or appliances
  • Make sure their homes are well sealed and insulated
  • And more!


"We want to do our part to reduce our country's greenhouse gas emissions and help fight global warming," said Leah Thwing, Compliance Manager. "We are proud to spread the word about the difference that individuals in our community can make by taking energy-saving steps in the workplace and at home."

If every American household took the actions in the pledge, we would save more than 110 billion kilowatt hours of electricity, more than $18 billion in annual energy costs, and prevent greenhouse gas emissions equivalent to more than 18 million cars.

"Becoming part of the solution to global warming takes less time and effort than you might think. You can start by taking simple steps like changing a light or looking for the ENERGY STAR® when you purchase new products," said Kathleen Hogan, Director of the Climate Protection Partnerships Division at EPA. "We are delighted to work with Rob Rohena, Anco Products Inc.'s Marketing Director and others across the country who are helping in the fight against global warming. Together, we can all make a difference and protect our environment through simple everyday actions."

About ENERGY STAR®

ENERGY STAR was introduced by EPA in 1992 as a voluntary, market-based partnership to reduce greenhouse gas emissions through energy efficiency. Today, the ENERGY STAR label can be found on more than 50 different kinds of products as well as new homes and buildings. Products that have earned the ENERGY STAR designation prevent greenhouse gas emissions by meeting strict energy-efficiency specifications set by the government. In 2007, Americans, with the help of ENERGY STAR, saved $16 billion on their energy bills while reducing greenhouse gas emissions equivalent to those of 27 million vehicles.
