It is important that we speed up the replacement of R-22 refrigerants at this point. It is true that it is better than CFC, however, if you will look into the electrical consumption of units that make use of R-22, it is still contributing to environmental problems one way or the other. So what makes a good option at this point?
It is imperative that a refrigerant is not going to break the ozone layer down, and should also be energy efficient at the same time.
In reality, progress has been made since the Montreal Protocol. This international treaty made everyone realize the need for a refrigerant that is environmentally friendly. One alternative that has been considered is the R-410A. Though this type of refrigerant doesn’t deplete the ozone layer and increases our exposure to ultraviolet rays, its electricity consumption is just as bad as R-22.
Now, if you are going to consider the reality that 40% of the electricity that is being produced is actually used by HVAC systems, it is time to reassess the type of refrigerant that you should be using. Enter the TDX 20 into the picture.
Bluon Energy has come up with the patented tech and formulation of TDX20. TDX 20 might cost a bit more than your average refrigerant, but this meets all the requirements of our time. It offers reduced energy consumption by up to 30%. And also, the unit will last longer. What it does is decrease the amp draw. And therefore, the compressor doesn’t really have to work so hard compared to a unit that runs on R22.
Now, how much exactly are you going to spend if you end up changing the compressor once there is damage? Replacing the compressor is simply like buying a new unit. You will be spending not only $400 on the replacement part. Labor will also have to be taken into consideration.
If you care about the environment, the more that you should be switching to a TDX20 refrigerant. It can help you reduce your carbon footprint since you can actually reduce the usage of the unit by 90 minutes every day. Also, a 100,000 square feet of property that uses HVAC systems can prevent using up to 60 metric tons of carbon dioxide every year. Now, that is a great contribution to the environment.
You also don’t have to buy a new unit. You can simply replace TDX20 refrigerant in your system that runs on R22. It is compatible with most systems. And not only that, TDX20 is also known for being low maintenance.
If you are using an air conditioning unit or a refrigerator, regardless if it is in your home or it is in your business, it is always a good idea that you turn to TDX20. Yes, it might hurt your wallet for a while especially in the beginning. However, you also have to remember that it is a great investment in the long run especially when you are using HVAC systems for industrial or for commercial purpose.
