Trend Alert: CO2 Refrigeration Systems
By Mike Ochoa, EVP Sales and Marketing
We are seeing a trend in the refrigeration and HVAC industry as CO2 systems are gaining in popularity as a natural alternative to synthetic refrigerants for both supermarket and industrial applications. Although the technology is relatively new, CoolSys is emerging as a leader in CO2 engineering, installation and maintenance. We’ve had more than 10 years’ experience and collectively our operating brands have installed more than 150 CO2 systems across the country. This includes C.E. Holt’s experience with multiple grocery store applications, RSI’s installation for Yosemite Foods and ABC Refrigeration’s installation for Amazon — notably two of the largest CO2 jobs in the nation. And we’re gearing up to help more clients with their CO2 Systems.
About CO2 Refrigeration
CO2 refrigeration systems are a low global warming potential (GWP), sustainable alternative to using synthetic refrigerants. With recent regulations to phase out HFCs, CO2 systems enable our customers to get ahead of the mandates for environmental protection and future-proof their systems.
