By January 1, 2017 all new car models Acs must be charged with a low GWP refrigerant. The main contenders in this category at the moment are working substances CO2 and R1234yf.
Energy recovery ventilation systems will reach nearly $3 billion in annual revenue by 2020, forecasts navigant research
BOULDER, Colo.…(BUSINESS WIRE)…An energy recovery ventilator (ERV) is a type of heating, ventilation, and air conditioning (HVAC) equipment that uses the energy associated with the thermally conditioned air being exhausted from a building to precondition the incoming air.
Sleep is essential for good health, as we all know. But a new study hints that there may be an easy but unrealized way to augment its virtues: lower the thermostat. Cooler bedrooms could subtly transform a person’s stores of brown fat — what has lately come to be thought of as “good fat” — and consequently alter energy expenditure and metabolic health, even into daylight hours.
As well as celebrating its 50th anniversary this year, Adcock Refrigeration and Air Conditioning has launched a new payment scheme to help businesses replace old or inefficient air-conditioning and refrigeration systems.
BOULDER, Colo. — Because of the substantial number of existing buildings, retrofits are a critical pathway to greening the world’s commercial buildings, notes Navigant Research.
The capital of Qatar provided two ultra-modern fanzones cooled by the latest climate technology for football fans watching the matches of the recently concluded World Cup FIFA ™ 2014 in Brazil.
The ministry for the environment of Germany considers necessary the development of transport CO2-based air-conditioning systems
The Federal Ministry for the Environment, Nature Conservation and Nuclear Safety of Germany made a statement about the continued development of transport air-conditioning systems based on the natural refrigerant CO2 instead of using doubtful alternative R1234yf.
A hospital in Aydin, Turkey, is to serve as a test case to demonstrate that it is possible to reduce energy consumption by 50% and decrease greenhouse gas emissions with retrofitting solutions.
DuPont is trialling a new lower GWP refrigerant blend as possible “drop-in” replacement for R404A in transport refrigeration systems.
It has previously been difficult to cost-effectively measure the performance of refrigeration systems in operation. Now there is the ClimaCheck method.
