Reducing the environmental impact of commercial cooling systems is critical for sustainability. Businesses can reduce their carbon footprint by improving their systems and making informed decisions. Our latest article in Facility Executive, “Sustainable Cooling: Strategies For Achieving Greener A/C Systems,” explores six ways for businesses to enhance system sustainability.
Strategy number one: adopt low-GWP HFCs, HFOs, or HFC/HFO blends. When the time is right, adopting low global warming potential (GWP) HFCs, HFOs, and blends not only allows businesses to reduce their carbon footprint and comply with environmental regulations but also improve their bottom line.
Systems using these solutions offer exceptional thermodynamic performance resulting in improved energy efficiency and cost savings compared to so-called “natural” refrigerants. A switch to a low-GWP HFC, HFO, or HFC/HFO-based system can be scheduled at a convenient time and is completed quickly, with minimal business disruption.
