It’s time for another HVAC/Roundup - our monthly review of the news and topics we found important to HVAC/R and refrigerant management and compliance over the last few weeks:
We’ve reached summer, and it’s time for another HVAC/Roundup; a look at the topics we found important over the last few weeks - and keep reading to the end for a special announcement:
Believe it or not, we're getting close to the end of the month. We had a lot to talk about the last few weeks. Let's sum things up...
Together we lose $27 billion dollars (US) - if you own or manage a building, your share is $6,750/year
We regularly share information about how to better manage refrigerants, we talk about their impact, results from our work, and stories we hear from others. This week we’re reviewing a report by the EIA (Environmental Investigation Agency). Yes they are a European environmental group, and their goal of spreading climate change awareness may seem out of touch with the day to day responsibilities of the average building owner/manager in the US. But if you replace the word climate change with lost profit, this story has some revealing results.
Refrigerants have been identified as the Big Bad when it comes to climate change, and therefore the management of those refrigerants has been widely recognized as the No 1 solution. At trakref we know refrigeration management, so we also know that not all management solutions are created equal.
25 years of results have proven to us that leaks and emissions don’t drop either from recycling or from just hoping people will do the right thing.
