Talk with Trane: Refrigerant Update

November 2021

Did you miss our live, virtual Talk with Trane: Refrigerant Update event? No worries, we are providing it here to review at your leisure.

What we discussed:

Concerns regarding climate change due to global warming are bringing about a transition for refrigerants used in the HVAC industry.

Some states have already enacted legislation to phase out the use of hydrofluorocarbon (HFC) refrigerants such as R134a and R410A based on global warming potential (GWP).

Additionally, the U.S. EPA has proposed a new rule to limit hydrofluorocarbon (HFC) production in an effort to align with the Kigali Amendment to the Montreal Protocol and the AIM Act enacted last year.

The United States will be participating in the United Nations Climate Change conference in Glasgow, Scotland this year as the world comes together to address this issue.

Learn more about the transition from hydrofluorocarbon (HFC) refrigerants to less harmful, next-generation refrigerants so as to begin to assess the impact on your systems.

As an added bonus, we are throwing in the Q&A report, too!
