2018 Michigan Refrigerant Recovery Services

Commercial refrigeration has experienced a big boom in recent years. Guaranteeing food quality and safety can only be satisfied by low temperature transport and storage to prevent bacterial growth. “Foodie” culture in particular emphasizes freshness and prevention of food borne illnesses, and any missteps are quick to be exposed online and in social channels—which means that refrigeration has becoming incredibly important in protecting many brands’ reputations. What does this mean for us? Refrigeration is going to be everywhere soon. Let’s take a look at some commercial refrigeration trends and how they’ll affect us in the future.

Energy efficiency and environmental impact

Throughout the years, the focus on energy efficiency in the HVAC industry has continually increased. Companies are constantly looking for new methods, technologies and tools to be able to reduce waste. New energy-efficient heating and cooling technologies will become more available, giving companies new options to choose from. Efficient equipment can lead to savings down the line for both consumers and companies.  

There’s been a lot of work done to try and find more eco-friendly refrigerants. HFC refrigerants worked for their purpose of minimizing damage to the ozone layer, but with the unfortunate side effect of contributing to greenhouse gas emissions. Natural refrigerants such as ammonia and carbon dioxide seem like the future, but the challenge is making them affordable enough and sustainable enough that they can be adopted by a wide swathe of the industry. Overall, regulations are pushing the refrigeration industry towards lower-GWP refrigerants. Various agencies are already taking action to reduce hydrofluorocarbon use by restricting sales of high-GWP refrigerants and proposing incentives for low-GWP refrigerant use. Generally, industry focus will be on energy savings and lowering environmental impact. Future-proofing a company’s systems will be the name of the game in this uncertain future.

What steps are being taken to minimize environmental impact?

Replacing traditional refrigerants with natural or low-GWP refrigerants has a significant impact on the greenhouse effect. In a traditional commercial enterprise which uses refrigerant heavily, such as a supermarket, replacing R404A can bring approximately a 20% reduction in total environmental impact. For newer natural refrigerants such as ammonia, leaks are generally irrelevant in terms of greenhouse effect. Refrigerant and HVAC companies are learning to deal with the fact that some natural refrigerants can be flammable. Training and protocols for handling refrigerants such as R290—a high purity version of propane suitable for use in the refrigeration and air conditioning industry—are gradually becoming more and more widespread. It’s just one side effect of having low-GWP natural refrigerants that are also effective for everyday use, but the industry as a whole has risen to meet the challenge.

Improving system efficiency and transitioning to new low-GWP refrigerants as mandated by current regulations—or ones about to be adopted—will significantly reduce the impact of commercial refrigeration. This is in spite of an overall increase in the number of HVAC and refrigeration systems in place.

What is next?

Going forward, one thing that is for sure is the role of refrigerant recovery. As technology advances and new solutions are found for refrigeration challenges, there is going to be a constant evolution of the kinds of refrigerants and HVAC units that will be on the market. As such, you’re going to want to have a reliable, proven refrigerant specialist on hand to help you transition to more effective technologies and more eco-friendly, low-GWP refrigerants. Refrigerant Services LLC would be more than happy to be your refrigerant specialist.

Our highly-trained technicians are constantly updated on new regulations, training, and protocols for dealing with refrigerants you’ll find in almost any commercial refrigeration or HVAC unit. If you’re ready to look toward the future of our industry, we’re right there with you—just give us a call at 844-PURECFC (7873232) and we’d be more than happy to tell you how we can help.

2018 Michigan Refrigerant Recovery Revenue Stream

Spring can mean new beginnings, and also new opportunities and growth for your Company. Treat your business to all three by opening up a new revenue stream. It sounds difficult, doesn’t it? But what if it actually is not that hard? If you’ve got old refrigerants and refrigerant cylinders lying around, then you may be sitting on money that you didn’t even know you had. We understand that winter can be the most difficult season for many business owners, so we want to help you recover in time for a great spring and—hopefully—an even better summer. Refrigerant Services LLC’s Clean Exchange program may be just what you need to spur your company’s growth into a real powerhouse this year. How? Let’s take a look at what it can do for you:

Fresh, clean cylinders for your old, dilapidated cylinders.

We take your expired or otherwise outdated refrigerant cylinders and give you back clean, fully-certified and EPA-compliant cylinders. That’s our guarantee—we’ll provide you with complete documentation for all the cylinders you get so that you can sleep soundly with the knowledge that all the work that’s been completed –  is not only to the proper specifications but also follows all EPA regulations for handling of refrigerants. We can handle all types of cylinders as well, whether they’re full, partially full, empty or even expired. That’s the main draw of the Refrigerant Services LLC Clean Exchange program: we take your old cylinders and give you new ones.

We can simplify the process for you.

Now, most other commercial refrigerant companies would have you pack up and deliver the cylinders before any refrigerant is reclaimed and any replacements are dispensed to you. That’s not something we want you to have to deal with; which is why we’ve done away with that step entirely. We won’t ask you to cart around heavy cylinders—we’ll come and pick them up ourselves. This is another benefit of our Clean Exchange program: complete consolidation and on-site recovery. Our team of specialists is ready to take care of the job from start to finish. We don’t believe in half measures at Refrigerant Services LLC. Recovering these refrigerants is an important job, so we think it’s best if we’re the ones who do it from start to finish while you get to focus on taking care of your business, your employees and your bottom line.

Whatever you need, we can get.

Not only do we deal with all the standard size cylinders (30 lbs., 50 lbs., 100 lbs., 125 lbs., or 240 lbs.), we can provide you with containers to rent up to half a ton. We also provide tank-renting services by request if you need a new tank in your area. For any extraordinary cases or special needs, simply get in touch with us and we’ll do our best to accommodate you.

What’s the catch?

You’d think there’d be a catch, right? It’s either going to be prohibitively expensive or involve some kind of convoluted process. There actually isn’t a catch! Not only will we give you new cylinders at the best prices we have, we’ll even pay you for every drop of refrigerant you can get from your old, dilapidated cylinders. There’s the revenue stream we were talking about—you’re saving money by getting newer, more efficient and eco-friendly refrigerants and cylinders, and you’ll get paid for it as well. The knock-on effect of this can be huge—we know that trying to get the maximum amount of value out of every aspect of the business is key to achieving growth and profit, and this is our little way of helping you out. Plus, we get to help keep the environment safe from old, harmful refrigerants. It’s a win for everyone.

Our highly-trained and EPA-certified technicians are ready to help not only by getting you the best deals for your old refrigerants, but also by removing potentially harmful refrigerants from your workplace. If you’re ready for a fresh start, we’re just a phone call away—you can reach us at 844-PURECFC (787-3232). We’d be more than happy to tell you more about what our Clean Exchange Program can offer; and how we can work together towards a cleaner, brighter and greener future. If you don’t have time for a call, we have a convenient online form which you can fill out and someone will reach out to you when you’re available.
