How much attention do you pay to your air cons and their components? If you want to reduce your carbon footprint and help save the environment, it may be a good time to look more closely into what goes into your air cons. One of the things to look into is your air con’s refrigerant.

Refrigerants are generally used as an air con’s working fluid. Unfortunately, when refrigerant gases are released into the atmosphere, they could affect the environment through global warming and ozone depletion. With these effects in mind, several international communities have put various measures in place to help reduce our air con’s carbon footprint.

What is a Reclaimed Refrigerant?

A reclaimed refrigerant goes through a number of processes and treatments that get rid of impurities in a used refrigerant, making it more sustainable and completely reusable. In fact, a reclaimed refrigerant is able to restore a recovered refrigerant’s purity levels to where it is able to meet international standards.

How does it work? For starters, we recover refrigerants from the market via our very own customers first. Once the refrigerants are reclaimed, they will be regenerated to a qualitative standard that allows them to have properties close to that of brand new refrigerants.

In case you’re wondering, a reclaimed refrigerant is not the same as a recycled refrigerant. While a recycled refrigerant may reduce and remove contaminants, they do not meet any standard. A reclaimed refrigerant, on the other hand, takes things a step further by processing the refrigerant to ensure that it meets or exceeds the AHRI-700 standard (International Virgin Refrigerant Standard).

Daikin Singapore is phasing in the use of reclaimed refrigerants in line with our advocacy of promoting eco-friendly and zero waste. We promote the reuse, recovery, and reclaim of refrigerants as part of our Sustainable Green initiatives.

Daikin’s reclaimed refrigerants promise optimal energy efficiency and equipment operation, as well as a prolonged lifespan so you won’t have to keep replacing your refrigerants or repairing your aircons. It also reduces equipment downtime.

If going green for your building and reducing your carbon footprint is important to you, then a reclaimed refrigerant from Daikin would be a great option. Our method of refrigerant reclamation uses a sustainable recycling process and provides an effective refrigerant waste management solution for the environment. It reduces the amount of ozone depletion potential and global warming potential that usually comes about from the release of refrigerant gases so you can do your part for Mother Nature.
