MISSISSAUGA, Ontario - The Heating, Refrigeration and Air Conditioning Institute of Canada (HRAI) has released the 2006 update on the Canadian CFC chiller stock study. 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.

The current update estimates that 223 chillers, previously operating on CFC refrigerants, were converted or replaced in Canada during 2006. This represents a 16.4 percent decrease in conversions/replacements as compared to 2005. The total number of converted or replaced chillers, however, increased from 2,109 (2005) to 2,332, and the rate of conversion/replacements increased from 38.4 percent (2005) to 42.5 percent. The HRAI study, “Determining a Baseline Number of CFC Chillers in Canada,” was originally published in July 2000.
