Air-Conditioning Contractors of America (ACCA) is a non-profit association that serves more than 60,000 professionals and 4,000 businesses in the HVACR community who work together to promote professional contracting, energy efficiency, and healthy, comfortable indoor environments. On May 1st at the association’s Industry Partners Forum, I spoke on the topic of “Refrigerants – Get Ready for the Future, But What Is It?”.
The topics that I covered at the presentation include: the proliferation of refrigerants and the global issues and regulations driving this growth; the currently available refrigerant options as well as those still in development; an evaluation of AC and refrigeration systems as they relate to available refrigerants; and the Life Cycle Climate Performance approach to the overall environmental impact of refrigerants.
