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We take your expired or otherwise outdated refrigerant cylinders and give you back clean, fully-certified and EPA-compliant cylinders.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.

What is the EPA and why are refrigerants being reclaimed?

In July 9, 1970, President Nixon submitted Reorganization Plan No. 3 establishing the Environmental Protection Agency. In the president’s message to Congress regarding Reorganization Plan No. 3, he said that the government was “not structured to make a coordinated attack on the pollutants which debase the air we breathe, the water we drink, and the land that grows our food." Nixon was proposing the creation of one agency to oversee “research, monitoring, standard-setting, and enforcement activities” that had heretofore been scattered amongst many discrete agencies that had limited avenues in which to work together. It wasn’t until December of 1970 that the EPA began operations.

Nowadays the EPA is responsible for setting environmental policies, rules and regulations which aim to uphold environmental standards. Its stated mission is to protect the environment and seek new ways to preserve its condition. As such it is responsible for the enforcement of things such as the Clean Air Act and the Montreal Protocol, which the United States has ratified.

The EPA also funds educational opportunities for those looking to work with them in the future. It employs over fifteen thousand employees and manages a network of environmental volunteers. These volunteers police their assigned areas in an effort to reduce pollution and make their surrounding communities more environmentally-friendly.

Not only does the EPA enforce the current rules, it also sponsors and conducts research into new ways to protect and preserve the environment. It is in light of this kind of research that the EPA prohibits the use of certain harmful chemicals and compounds that may have an adverse effect on the environment and the people living in it. Once the EPA has the evidence it needs from scientific studies, it can then fulfill its other role: that of a regulatory agency. This is what gives the EPA its teeth – its ability to deploy a large number of field agents whose role is to ensure that its regulations and programs are being followed by both businesses and individuals.

To top it all off, the EPA also has a large legal team who assist in pursuing penalties against those who are found to be in violation of EPA regulations. It has both the manpower to find out if you’ve been breaking the law as well as the manpower to make sure you pay for it. In a nutshell, the Environmental Protection Agency protects people and the environment from significant health risks, sponsors and conducts research, and develops and enforces environmental regulations.

Why are refrigerants being reclaimed?

By 2020, the EPA will enforce a phase out of hydrochlorofluorocarbons (HCFCs) in compliance with provisions in the Montreal Protocol. Simply put, the Montreal Protocol is a treaty aimed at regulating the production, consumption and sale of chemicals that damage the Earth’s ozone layer. Many HVAC units and refrigeration units sold in the last two decades still use some of these chemicals, so now is the time to start making the switch from these older refrigerants to newer, cleaner variants.  Aside from that, even if the refrigerants used are still allowed, it’s still important to bring them up to the standard for purity specifications for modern refrigerant compounds.

When dealing with older refrigerants there are 3 different options:

  • Recycling refrigerants: Involves taking the refrigerant out of a system and then cleaning it. Once the refrigerant is clean, it can be returned to the system or put in a new container ready for reuse.
  • Reclaiming refrigerants: Typically the most expensive method as it requires the most specialized equipment. Instead of just recycling the refrigerant, all impurities are removed in line with ARI-700 standards for purity, effectively bringing the refrigerant close to the state of never-been-used refrigerants. 
  • Recovering refrigerant: Involves taking out the refrigerant from a system and putting it in a container while the system itself is repaired or tested. No change is done to the refrigerant itself.

If this all sounds complicated, simply get in touch with us – we can fit your business with a refrigerant management plan. It’s definitely not something you want to ignore now that the deadline for compliance is coming up. The bottom line is, if you want to avoid getting on the wrong side of the EPA, it’s best to trust certified professionals to take care of your refrigerant reclamation for you. We at Refrigerant Services LLC are fully certified in refrigerant recovery and replacement services – our highly trained staff has decades worth of experience in the HVAC field. We are fully EPA-compliant and also provide you with complete documentation.
