TOPIC Refrigerant: “Ever since the Montreal Protocol meetings began regulating CFCs in the 1980s, refrigerant rules and acceptability continue to evolve. Since then, there has been an increased focus and accelerated timing on regulations for all fluids that are being used today in the HVAC industry. This persistent churn generates confusion— what's in, what's out, and what's coming? At the same time, the market has been demanding equipment, design strategies and control methods that result in the highest levels of efficiency— will the new fluids hinder or enhance that efficiency? The next-generation of fluids represents new challenges for providing the highest performing HVAC equipment; besides efficiency they may also challenge the industry’s expectations for safety and flammability. This presentation separates fact from fiction, and discusses why, when, and how the industry will face the coming refrigerant transitions.”
