No, BTC isn’t a problem with energy. Ignorance, and Selfishness is.(P.S. I don’t mine or Hold BTC outside of dust)

In actual fact, I am not even an enormous supporter of Bitcoin. I respect Bitcoin for what it has introduced.

It kinda sucks that each one different cryptos tank when it tanks. I would wish to see Cryptos be their very own market not relied on bitcoin’s stability to be steady themselves.

It is like proudly owning inventory in an organization that is utterly unrelated, and unreliant on google however watching your inventory dip as a result of google shares dipped.

That stated, I am not making this publish to Shill towards the FUD round bitcoins vitality utilization. I am gonna lay down a nicely knowledgeable publish that exhibits you the way IGNORANCE wastes extra vitality than Bitcoin ever might.

It is a lengthy learn, and even longer if you’re truth checking it.

###So who am I?

###What are my {qualifications} to speak about vitality utilization?

I am a small enterprise proprietor, I Run a Industrial HVAC/R Firm (Heating Air flow Air Conditioning Refrigeration).

Sadly I began this firm a month earlier than lockdowns hit and misplaced just about all my contracts. (Non important) Worst half about it Is I truly began it to focus on Indoor Air High quality, and Curing Constructing Illness(Viruses, chemical compounds Within the air).

You’d assume I would be booming however since Asia purchased out all our accessible merchandise, most firms have been caught on a 6 month ready listing to get a merchandise for one job nevermind sufficient to final by the pandemic. You could not even discover them on-line on the time even for those who have been keen to tear your self off and pay 10x the worth.

Anyway. Being a top quality HVAC tech requires you to have an excellent understanding of electrical energy as 90% of repairs require you to troubleshoot…

– Electrical circuits each AC and DC working off 5V/12V/24v/120V/208V/230v/240V/460v and 570Volts.

– Electro-mechanical elements akin to compressors, Variable frequency Drives, ECMs(Digital Communicated Motors), LED pushed Motors, floating shaft drives which are suspended in air by EMF(Electrical magnetic power) fields to stop friction and decrease vitality utilization.

– Utterly updated with Native, state, and federal electrical codes

– System Harmonics

Newer extra vitality environment friendly programs are getting an increasing number of sophisticated, and a few are recognized to ship harmonics by the buildings electrical programs. Which might set a constructing on fireplace.

It is not shocking that an nicely skilled, nicely educated HVAC tech is aware of extra about electrical energy than your on a regular basis electrician.

I additionally must have an honest understanding of plumbing on prime of all this, Handbook J(Warmth load calculations) for permits, Handbook D(Air circulate dynamics).

It’s a must to be very environment friendly in all these things..A minimum of for those who’re trying to receives a commission Prime greenback by an organization. However even decrease finish common joe hack and slash chilly beer can techs that change your house AC unit have some understanding of these items. I would silly how a lot it’s a must to know. One fuck Up and you cannot solely get sued out of enterprise, you may truly get your self killed.

Okay sufficient of this. These are my {qualifications}. I do know so much about vitality utilization.

Now let’s speak about How Ignorance, and Selfishness for that matter wastes far more vitality than Bitcoin ever might.

###Let’s begin off with selfishness

Wealthy individuals who personal enormous pointless houses. I’ve carried out HVAC service for loads of these houses. I’ve seen sufficient.

Greater than 10% of houses in America are values at $1,000,000 or extra.

There are 850,000 Major residential houses valued at over $1,000,000+

now in fact not all of those are greater than a mean house. An everyday sized home in NYC working only one HVAC system can price MILLIONS. I am not speaking about these. I am speaking about exterior of the large cities.

Let’s take houses in and round Alpine, NJ the place Chris Rock Lives. Bergen County, NJ I consider the second richest county within the US. Ho-ho-kus NJ is shut. I’ve seen and labored on many of those houses.

###The quantity of HVAC gear that is wanted to warmth and funky these utterly pointless outsized houses is equal to working 10 Antminer S9s a day.

1 Antminer S9 working 24hours a day is utilizing a complete of 36KWH

1 5 Ton central AC unit working 12Hrs a day is utilizing 60KWH

Rule of thumb is 1KWH per ton. 5 TON = 5KWH x 12 = 60KWH. The typical house in these areas are working FIVE 5 ton ACS and a pair 3 Tonners. You maintain the visitor home within the again cool always in case you get an surprising visitor. No more often than not they are not “Vitality environment friendly 16 Seer(Seasonal vitality effectivity Score)”.

I am not even contemplating poorly maintained programs which are older nonetheless working off O-Zone depleting R 22 Refrigerant. A whole lot of these houses nonetheless have older programs like that are not correctly maintained to run as environment friendly as potential. Let’s not overlook all of the add ons these folks get to their programs. These numbers are simply Naked bone programs. Most have Humidifiers (for winter) hooked up, zoning controls, alarms , condensation pumps.

It is silly.

Certain, most people who find themselves wealthy desire a massive mansion. However on the finish of the day, wealthy or not for those who cared in regards to the surroundings a lot, you would not want an silly outsized house like that and most of those persons are by no means house however they’ve their programs working on a regular basis. They’ve home sitters to observe their houses after they’re on trip. Sure. Home sitters. Normally a good friend to simply come by and reside in your house. God is aware of why you want that shit however you are wealthy. Why not rent somebody to place your sneakers on within the morning?

Guess who has enormous stake within the information networks that let you know BTC is wasteful??? It is not folks on this sub hoping to go lambo someday that is for certain.

Now sufficient complaining about wealthy folks.

Let’s discuss in regards to the Ignorance a part of common of us that waste extra vitality than a Bitcoin miner.


Most common houses not occupied by wealthy folks run one 3-5Ton HVAC unit at the very least 10hrs a day and once more many houses are nonetheless working O-zone depleting R22 (CFC) programs which are simply utilizing at the very least 50% extra energy than new programs.

Let’s not even think about the quantity of copper wanted for these items. Which is round 30lbs of copper. That is extra copper in a single system than is required to make 100,000 pennies made after 1982. I am additionally proficient in melting metals. We have now to know melting factors of metals for numerous causes not stepping into it although. There’s 100,000,000 air conditioned houses in America and like talked about above , not all are working only one system. That is sufficient copper to make 10,000,000,000,000 pennies and like I stated. That is contemplating 1 per house and never contemplating what number of system replacements annually. That is additionally not contemplating the AC in your vehicles which run a 3 Ton system on common.

Sure, your common automobile wants sufficient tonnage to chill a house as a result of it has to have the flexibility to convey the temp down from 100 levels to 75 degress in a minute the place is a house wants a gradual lower in temp over the course of some hours.

So the place’s the ignorance half?

Most of those persons are pumping their ACs after they do not want it. I do know this from expertise and likewise understanding of psychrometric charts. Sure, I additionally must have an understanding of meteorology fundamentals.

Once more. It is silly how a lot issues you have to know to be environment friendly on this discipline we do not get sufficient credit score for it. The human consolation zone is 70-75 levels 45-55% RH(relative humidity)

Most individuals are setting their thermostats to 68° to 72° on a 70-75 diploma day when actually they solely have to have their window open as a result of….

*meh…it is just a bit too stuffy in right here honey…btw did you learn that article on how Bitcoin wastes vitality? What grasping egocentric folks they’re*

Not solely that. Most of those older programs are leaking that CFC refrigerant.

Do you know 1 chlorine atom can destroy as much as 100,000 Ozone molecules???

That’s silly air pollution.

*Honey, name the HVAC man…we have to prime off our system with refrigerant once more…it is 77 levels in right here I am unable to sleep like this*


Most programs usually are not correctly maintained even for those who get a upkeep in your system each season.

The rationale why a correctly maintained system wants up to date electrical elements to run as vitality environment friendly as potential. Most have “pitted contactors” that arch. Pitted contactors could be in comparison with pitted spark plugs in a automobile. Yeah, these pitted contactors are driving up everyones electrical invoice $50-$100 a month. However most individuals aren’t going to pay the additional $100 on prime of a $150-$200 upkeep to get this carried out.

The convo goes like this

Hvac man: *Sir, your contactor needs to be changed as nicely. It is inflicting your system to make use of extra vitality then it wants and it is hurting the longevity of your system*

Dwelling proprietor : how a lot

Tech : I’ll put it in for $100

Know all of it Ned: can it run by this season with out changing it?

Tech: sure it might however..

Proprietor: okay fuck it ..I’ll handle it subsequent 12 months.

Level right here.
You needn’t run your air conditioner when it is 75° in your house. The important thing to consolation is low humidity. You’ll be able to spend an additional few hundred bucks and get a dehumidifier attachment to your system that lowers the humidity in your house and makes use of solely 10% the electrical energy that the system wants the run. Being exterior in 100° and excessive humidity and strolling into a house that is 77° with low humidity is a big distinction in feels very snug. You needn’t pump your AC all the way down to 68° all freaking day.

One other frequent false impression is that folks assume they’re saving vitality by utterly shutting off their programs after they go on a day trip after which coming house to a home that is 85° after which working the system. That truly makes use of extra vitality than working the system to take care of a temperature. As a result of now this technique has to pump exhausting for the subsequent few hours to get that temperature all the way down to the place it must be so you may sleep correctly with out rolling round and sweat.

*However…its frequent sense to show it off once I go away*

No it is not. If Widespread Sense was all that was wanted to save lots of vitality we would not want scientists we would not want excessive qualify technicians to work on issues.

So there you may have it. Selfishness, and Ignorance wastes WAY extra vitality that bitcoin can ever. In actual fact for those who used half the world’s vitality to mine Bitcoin on the present hash charge all of the bitcoins could be mined and precisely 68 days. So no it is not an issue half the world’s vitality just isn’t going for use to mine Bitcoin.

EDIT Half 1:. It is kinda actually actually egocentric That Wealthy Individuals within the US Alone waste extra vitality than the world does mining Bitcoin But they need to use their Monetary energy , and their stake in main Information networks responsible you…the common working citizen that you just’re not allowed to make use of slightly additional vitality for a fast buck?

Wish to make an actual change in vitality utilization? As an alternative of protesting to struggle different individuals who aren’t the actual explanation for points, march into these 20 million greenback house areas and demand everybody to cease working their HVAC items equal to working 10 miners 24/7/365 after they solely spend 20 days out of the 12 months within the house.

If you may get these folks to abide to this someway then you’ll have loads of vitality saved for Bitcoin utilization.

Do not be a hypocrite. Do not waste vitality equal to 1 miner after which complain about mining. Previous saying nonetheless holds true to day…

– “Put up or Shut up”

– “Do onto others as you do to your self”

– “Observe what you preach”

Hold that on repeat in your head till You cease knocking others for a way they select to make use of vitality…. Egocentric F**Ks
