Bye Bye R404A, welcome R134A.

17 March 2017

Starting from the current month, many of the IGLU Front of House standard products include Gas R134a, as a standard. 
Why? Because GWP in refrigerant R134a is less than the half of the GWP in gas R404a.

The Global warming potential (GWP) is a relative measure of how much heat a greenhouse gas traps in the atmosphere.
It compares the amount of heat trapped by a certain mass of the gas in question to the amount of heat trapped by a similar mass of carbon dioxide. A GWP is calculated over a specific time interval, commonly 20, 100 or 500 years.
GWP is expressed as a factor of carbon dioxide (whose GWP is standardized to 1).

In terms of Global Warming Potential in fact, Gas R134a reaches only 1550, while R404a is over a GWP of 3922.


Below a list of the products that will be using refrigerant as a standard R134a starting now, and stay tuned, we are proceeding with the with the full other lines too:
