Refrigerant Conversion/Upgrades

Does your facility utilize refrigerants like R22, R404A, or R507A that will eventually be phased out due to high Global Warming Potential (GWP)?

Do you have a plan for continuing operations as your refrigerant becomes unavailable for purchase in the coming years?

What happens if you have a leak?

Several refrigerants commonly used in refrigeration systems across the country are in the process of being phased out as the US aims to reduce the production and consumption of harmful greenhouse gasses. As a result, it is critical that facilities think ahead regarding refrigerants and the sustainability of their facilities. VaCom has assisted several of our customers by developing and completing turnkey projects to convert away from R22, R507A, and other high-GWP refrigerants, thus setting them on a more sustainable, environmentally friendly, and profitable path going forward.

VaCom works with industrial and commercial customers to deliver energy projects with significant savings.  Many projects qualify for incentive credits from various utility programs that encourage conservation.  For example, most electric utilities provide credits that apply to refrigeration retrofit projects, which can help pay for controls upgrades, new variable speed capabilities, or new refrigeration components.

VaCom experience with the major utilities makes this process easy.  We can design the updated system, simulate the savings, apply to the utility, and then implement the system on a turn-key basis.  Our experience with these Utility “Standard Performance Contracts” has been exceptional with a 100% record of success in obtaining energy savings and energy incentives.

VaCom customers within these areas obtain significant benefits.  Projects typically have a 12-18 month payback with a continuing savings benefit that extends for over 10 years.  In California, several utilities offer this type of program for energy conservation. Click here to view a recent example from SDG&E that saved our client $230,000.  Refer to the utility services link to see how VaCom works with major utilities to manage portions of these incentive programs.
