Prioritizing Refrigerant Reduction with Latest VRF Innovation
HVRF has recently arrived in the United States and is already available in the United Kingdom. As states like California and other U.S. markets begin requiring low GWP refrigerants (<700 GWP) for VRF in 2026, HVRF is a future-forward solution that allows for an easier refrigerant transition.
Getting it right for the customer and the climate
To make it simple, let’s think of refrigerant use in comparison to the three Rs: reduce, reuse, recycle. Reusing and recycling – what we do post-consumption – are important climate change mitigating behaviors. But reducing consumption ultimately drives sustainability. Refrigerants in HVAC systems work similarly. Finding better alternatives with lower global warming potentials is beneficial to the environment, but removing refrigerant from parts of our HVAC systems remains the ideal decarbonization solution.
Whether or not Trane® / Mitsubishi Electric HVRF is the right fit for your project, Trane offers the expertise and system technology to best manage your building’s refrigerant use and achieve your decarbonization goals. As a global leader in creating energy efficient and optimized buildings, we innovate new technologies and individualize solutions that get it right for you today and the world tomorrow.
