Air conditioners and refrigerators all use refrigerants to enable their cooling function. In recent years, refrigerants have evolved from harmful CFC to newer HFC-based compounds that are more efficient, less toxic, and better for the environment.
In fact, this year marks the first phase of the Environmental Protection Agency’s phase out of R410-a refrigerant in new HVAC systems. One of the foremost replacements is R32.
Here we discuss the differences between R410A and the newer R32, and what it means for you.
The HVAC industry is continuously evolving to meet changes in technology, regulations and environmental impact. One of those major changes is the R410-a phase out, and the adoption of new refrigerant standards in 2023.
In this article, we discuss all the refrigerant changes set to take effect in 2023.
Hot water is an essential part of life during the cold season. It’s a good way to start the day, and is also a good way to end it after a long tiring day in the office or a long commute home.
However, it also takes a toll on your wallet. According to the US Department of Energy, water heating accounts for up to 20% of the average household’s energy usage. That translates to roughly $600 a year just for hot water.
If you’re looking for a more cost-effective and energy efficient way to get hot water for your home, then a heat pump water heater just might be the answer.
