Installing a new HVACR system requires significant planning and technical expertise. In our article in HVAC Insider, globalFACT executive director Jordan Smith discussed how proper installation increases system efficiency:
“Proper installation is critical for efficiency. Poorly installed HVACR systems lose as much as 40% of their expected efficiency. The climate impact of this poor installation is double the impact of a properly installed system that leaked 100% of its refrigerant, regardless of the refrigerant’s GWP.
“Leak rates don’t magically improve over time. Without proper attention, leaks can get worse. Addressing them head on and quickly will reduce direct emissions and, more importantly, reduce indirect emissions by way of increased system efficiency.”
