There are more changes coming related to equipment energy standards and the refrigerants that are used in units that provide cooling and heating. Most equipment manufacturers are now working on new designs that may increase the size of the units and change the type of refrigerant needed for their operation. It will be important to have your team educated on these changes so that a plan can be developed and a budget set to address the cost of theses changes. To help pay for these upgrades, you may want to consider an equipment leasing program that, in some cases, will pay for itself with the energy savings. This would also be a good time to evaluate your needs to make sure your equipment meets your current requirements. The best way to do this is to have an equipment asset evaluation performed on your facility.
