Several leading compressor manufacturers weighed in with insights and advice for contractors and technicians as they learn how to work safely with the equipment utilizing these so-called alternative refrigerants as they transition into primary refrigerant choices.
What do contractors and their customers need to know when discussing variable-speed versus variable refrigerant flow (VRF) compressors? What benefits does each technology offer to customers and what applications are these technologies best suited for?
The Ice Cub is a compact, home-optimized HVAC system comprised of an ultra-high-efficiency compressor and ice tank with heat exchanger. The compressor operates in multiple modes. It can cool the home like a conventional a/c unit or, store energy in the form of cooling by freezing water in the ice tank.
The Green Tech Line of refrigeration and air conditioning components is designed for use with natural refrigerants R-290 (propane), R-600a (isobutane), and R-744 (CO2). These high-quality, hydrocarbon (HC) and CO2-ready system components include valves, controllers, transducers, filter driers, and microchannel heat exchangers.
