Heat pumps: what are the next key dates in the EU?

Keeping a comfortable temperature throughout the year has become a must. Not so long ago, people used to just have a stove to heat the house in winter, with temperature control based on their own perception and opening windows when feeling the temperature was too high. Moreover, heating and cooling have been traditionally considered as separate concepts, different fields of study… or even...

Refrigerant prices: what is happening?

Everything is happening at lightning speed! Just one and a half years ago, when I began going into detail on HFC refrigerant regulations, it all seemed to be about a change that would happen gradually and be really noticed in around 5 years’ time. Indeed, except for home refrigerators, the F-gas regulation establishes banning dates from 2020 to 2025. Yet HFC refrigerant prices and...

Chillers: what are the trends in refrigerants?

Most wine, beer and milk are made by a process that uses a chiller. It is essential to take away the heat produced by mixing, cooking and pasteurisation. Chilling systems are also indispensable in the medical industry. In particular, magnetic resonance imaging uses chillers to take away the heat generated by the equipment. The air-conditioning in most shopping centres and offices is also...

So, before going into details about how efficient beverage coolers should be (also called ...

Which refrigerants are allowed worldwide on stand-alone units?

Undoubtedly, the phasing out of HFC refrigerants has already started. The prices of high GWP refrigerants are gradually rising while availability is decreasing. For instance, Honeywell announced a few days ago that they are going to stop selling R-404A and R-507 in Europe . At the same time, Chemours has recently announced consecutive monthly price rises of 25% and 30% for high GWP...

Walk-in coolers and freezers in USA: the deadline is getting nearer!

Whereas many media-friendly political decisions have been made during the first 100 days of the new US administration, people working in HVAC/R sector are wondering whether the refrigerant and energy efficiency rules previously published will be kept. Looking at the DOE (Department of Energy) website, it can be seen that at the end of December 2016 a large number of final rules were...

New regulation on hospital humidification: cheap and clean, is it possible?

Air conditioning systems, including humidification, account for a major part of hospital daily running costs. Achieving energy and cost savings on these systems can bring considerable relief to hospital budgets, which often have to respond to public spending cuts and challenging energy consumption targets. The important question is therefore: can the need for humidification in...
