The most popular hydro-fluorocarbon (HFC) refrigerants for new commercial air conditioning systems include R-410A, R-407C and R-134a. As a facility manager or owner, it’s important that you understand these different refrigerants so that you can make informed decisions for your facility’s air conditioning system.
Anyone who has ever addressed a crowded room would agree – comfort is critical to participation and creating an overall positive experience. Many studies have concluded that air conditioning is the most critical factor in providing a comfortable, climate controlled environment for learning.
