While many refrigeration options exist for grocers and HVACR operators, equipment running on low-GWP HFCs, HFOs, and blends – known collectively as advanced climate technologies or “ACTs” – offers many unique advantages. 

These new-generation solutions present minimal safety risks, receiving low flammability and toxicity ratings from the American Society of Heating, Refrigerating and Air-Conditioning Engineers (ASHRAE). 

Operationally, this ACT-powered equipment is simple to service by a wide range of technicians and can be retrofitted into existing systems, saving both expense and effort. This ease of effort is particularly advantageous in light of current challenges in finding qualified technicians.
