HydroCarbons

Reduce Your Air Conditioning Running Costs

Our Vision is to facilitate the wide spread use of a more energy efficient, natural refrigerant that has almost ZERO carbon emissions.

Your air conditioner currently runs on flurocarbon refrigerants. By making the change to Hydrocarbon refrigerant you will significantly lower your energy costs, saving between 15%-25%. Hydrocarbon refrigerant lowers the operating pressure of your air conditioner. As a byproduct, your air conditioner will become quieter, last longer due to not working so hard and save you thousands with the compressor not working anywhere near as hard for the exact same comfort level.

The future can be more affordable and environmentally friendly without sacrificing your comfort. Enjoy your air con without worrying about the next electricity bill or your impact on the environment.

What energy savings can I expect from using Hydrocarbon Refrigerants?

Hydrocarbon Refrigerants are not just good for the environment; they can also save you up to 35% on your energy costs. Air-conditioning systems are the largest consumers of electricity for any building. The energy used in cooling generally accounts for 60% of a building’s total energy consumption. By converting to Hydrocarbon Refrigerants with Solaire Connect, substantial energy savings can become a reality.

Their operating pressures are about 20% lower than that of Fluorocarbon Refrigerants (found in standard Air Conditioners). These lower operating discharge pressures reduce the work that the compressor has to do thus reducing wear and tear. This can and will extend the working life of your equipment.

All these advantages equate to an energy saving of between 15% and 54%.

How do Hydrocarbon Refrigerants affect the environment?

The rate of climate change expected over the next 100 years is unprecedented in human history. It is difficult to grasp the full meaning of Global Warming as we rush to the next event of the day, yet face it we must or else allow the inevitable to happen. There is nothing new in extinction.

Hydrocarbon Refrigerants are one of those technologies that can make a big difference. Not only to the environment but also significantly reducing your energy costs.

Do you have to change the whole air conditioning unit when converting over to hydrocarbon refrigerants?

No. Only the chemical refrigerant in the unit will be replaced. However, every unit is different therefore inspections and assessments are important before conversion.
