Petri Plumbing, Heating, Cooling & Drain Cleaning suggests homeowners embrace new refrigerant technology as part of World Refrigeration Day
BROOKLYN, N.Y., June 5, 2024 /PRNewswire/ — Petri Plumbing, Heating, Cooling & Drain Cleaning, a family-owned home service company serving Brooklyn and Manhattan since 1906, says newer, sustainable coolants will not only help beat the heat, but can also help cut carbon emissions.

“It’s important that we prioritize sustainable coolants because they not only decrease the risk of global warming, they also help reduce energy consumption,” said Michael Petri, owner of Petri Plumbing, Heating, Cooling & Drain Cleaning. “While there are a number of options that are either in use or being studied, it’s important that homeowners stay on top of the latest technology so they can make informed choices when considering new air conditioning systems.”

The new studies into hydrofluoroolefins (HFOs) may change everything because they don’t linger in the environment and don’t contribute to global warming. And they also work more efficiently.

Because our HVAC systems are generally the biggest use of energy in a home, any technology that can both improve energy efficiency while reducing cost to the homeowner is a welcome addition to the industry.”
