With the elimination of R-22 in HVAC equipment to achieve compliance with environmental policies, many people wonder what they should use instead. The one option is to replace R-22 units with R-410A equipment, but this can become costly. The second option is to use a different refrigerant and keep the existing equipment. One of the refrigerants that you can consider using is Bluon TdX 20 which offers a range of advantages that you should consider.
The Overall Advantages
There are certain general advantages that you need to know about which could sway your opinion of Bluon TdX 20. The first is that this refrigerant will lower the energy consumption of your HVAC equipment by an average of 20%. This is done through a reduction in equipment run time as well as a lower amp draw rate.
The refrigerant is also compliant with the R-22 elimination as it is a non-ozone depleting refrigerant. The equipment delivery capacity is also great than or equal to R-22. The life of your equipment will also be extended with this refrigerant because of the lower operating pressure, the shorter cycle times and the reduced compressor temperatures.
The Performance Advantages
Performance is something that you need to consider when looking for an R-22 replacement. The benefit of the Bluon refrigerant is that it will decrease the amp draw by 5% to 25%. The daily runtime for the units will also be reduced by 20 to 90 minutes which is a major reduction. Peak load times will also be easier to handle as the energy consumption will be lowered during these times.
The refrigerant is also able to run on a range of systems including low, medium and high-temperature systems. When looking at these systems, it is important to note that this refrigerant has been optimized for use in medium and high-temperature units.
The Equipment And Installation Advantages
The primary advantage of this refrigerant in terms of your equipment is that it will run on all R-22 HVAC units which means you will not have to replace anything. The lifespan of the equipment will also be lengthened because of the lower pressure that the refrigerant works in.
The refrigerant will also work with all standard metering devices. This is important to note because you will not have to pay to have an expansion device.
The Environmental Advantages
The reason why R-22 is being eliminated is due to the impact it has on the environment and you need to take note of the advantages in this that are offered. The primary advantage is that this refrigerant is non-ozone depleting which means it will not be phased out like R-22.
The refrigerant is also non-toxic and non-flammable which makes it safer to use. When you use this refrigerant you will also gain points toward a LEED certification. The carbon footprint of buildings that are 100,000 square feet will also be reduced by up to 60 metric tons of CO2 per year. This has been proven in a third-party engineering study.
