Installers’ turnover is growing. Themes such as care, aging, energy and sustainability ensure positive expectations for the future. Various developments are forcing the installer to make more often strategic choices.
Natural refrigerants CO2, ammonia and hydrocarbons have been used in different HVAC & R applications for many years. With the exception of a few sectors, their market penetration has remained relatively low.
Companies want more and more less volume of refrigerant in their installations. That is why they often opt for indirect systems. Generation and distribution of heat and cold are separated from each other. For example, this trend ensures that Propane Chillers are gaining more attention.
The use of natural refrigerants is certainly not new. Way back in the last century and even the century before that, air, ammonia (NH3), carbon dioxide (CO2), propane (R290), sulphur dioxide (SO2) and other refrigerants were used.

Heat released by the cooling process can be reused elsewhere in a building, for example heating in the room or for hot tap water. The heat can be used directly in another workspace, or transferred via an intermediate medium, for example via a pressurized gas boiler.
