Working to combat climate change is often associated with solutions like recycling plastic bottles, repurposing glass jars for food storage or reducing disposable utensil use. However, there exist additional and simple changes that each of us can make in our day to day at home, such as how we dry clothes, cook food or power our appliances. Approximately 20% of energy-related greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions come from heating, cooling and powering households in the United States.

Recognizing this, climate experts have diligently provided resources and education to help individuals make micro-level changes, such as electrifying stoves, using induction cooktops or producing more efficient consumer electronics. Government-backed organizations, administered by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency or the U.S. Department of Energy, for example, offer guidance on finding energy-efficient appliances and accessing government tax credits for greener purchases. Similarly, non-profit organizations worldwide exist to partner with families and businesses to provide simple and credible information that consumers can rely on to make well-informed climate-aligned decisions and receive incentives for home efficiencies and electrification. 

The push toward electrification is gaining momentum globally as advanced economies around the world  embrace the urgency of addressing climate change. Whether one rents an apartment, owns a home or lives in a recreational vehicle, upgrades to electronics and lifestyle adjustments can significantly contribute to solving the larger climate challenge. By adopting simple yet practical changes like using an electric kettle instead of a gas stove or upgrading to a more efficient water heater, individuals can reduce their carbon footprint and save on energy bills.  

We play a vital role in powering electronics and appliances

Vibrantz offers premium heater on steel (HOS) paste systems that protect electronics by acting as insulators, preventing the conduction of electricity. High-quality paste systems result in greater product reliability and serve various functions including: 

  • Electrical insulation of electronic or appliance heating elements such as wires or coils  
  • Insulation of stainless or austenitic steel parts  
  • Prevention of electrical hazards and short circuits 
  • Additional layers of protection from external factors like dust, moisture and physical damage 
  • Creation of conductive pathways for electrical currents to flow safely  
  • Precise control over the amount of heat produced and accurate adjustment of temperature levels in the heating system 

Our HOS paste systems make electronics and home appliances more efficient in an array of everyday products like electric tea kettles, milk frothers, tankless water heaters and coffee makers.
