MISSISSAUGA, Ontario - The Heating, Refrigeration and Air Conditioning Institute of Canada (HRAI) released the 2007 update on the Canadian CFC chiller stock study. This update estimates that 276 chillers previously operating on CFC refrigerants were converted or replaced during the year 2007 in Canada. This represents a 23 percent increase in conversions/replacements as compared to 2006, bringing the total number of converted or replaced chillers from 2,332 in 2006, to 2,608, increasing the rate of conversion/replacements from 42.5 percent in 2006 to 47.5 percent currently.

The HRAI study, Determining a Baseline Number of CFC Chillers in Canada, was originally published in July 2000. The purpose of the program is to provide an ongoing estimate of the number of chillers in Canada that continue to operate on CFC refrigerants and track the annual rate of conversions and replacements of this chiller stock in future years.
