The environmental impact of commercial compressors gets more attention every year.
Over the last ten years especially, efforts to reduce the carbon footprint of commercial compressors have gone into full swing. Some of these efforts have led to significant changes in the way the devices are engineered and maintained.
Yes, a greater focus on the environment raised complexity in certain cases. All in all, businesses that rely on compressors are now starting to see the benefits. Today’s compressor units are more efficient, cost-effective, and reliable in large part because technology has advanced.
When you recycle at home, you might wonder whether or not you’re really making much of a difference for the environment. But when you choose the right commercial compressor, you can rest assured you are contributing to a greener future, especially for your children and grandchildren.
A single inefficient compressor can be a major polluter. Conversely, today’s “green” compressors are marvels of modern technology. And if you want to elevate your environmental standards even further, consider using a remanufactured commercial compressor whenever you need to replace a unit or expand your compressor fleet.
Remanufactured Commercial Compressors Reduce Industrial Waste
When you choose a remanufactured commercial compressor, you cut down on waste now and in the future.
A remanufactured commercial compressor goes through a comprehensive, step-by-step process to ensure total excellence. The unit is completely disassembled, components are replaced as necessary, and the system is cleaned inside and out. Then it undergoes testing to ensure it will operate as planned in the real world.
In the end, you have a compressor comparable to an all-new OEM unit without any industrial manufacturing.
The fabrication of new compressors is a major source of pollution. You can think of remanufacturing as recycling taken to the next level: In effect, you’ve made sure you won’t need an all-new compressor for 8-10 years. In the process, you also enjoy a significant discount compared to working with OEM distributors.
Use Less Electricity and Refrigerant Over Time with Remanufactured Compressors
Remanufactured compressors can deliver superior environmental performance over time, too.
As a compressor gets older, it naturally loses mechanical efficiency. Because the job done by the compressor is so important, every other part of your HVAC or refrigeration system will work harder to compensate. That means your equipment will draw more electricity and use or waste more refrigerant.
We all know the facts behind older generations of refrigerants: They have been some of the worst pollutants used in commercial and industrial environments. As old refrigerant formulations go out of production, many enterprises spend years hoarding their supplies. A remanufactured compressor makes the switch easy.
Using a remanufactured compressor does not mean you are going back in time to a lower standard of quality and performance. Remanufacturing provides you with access to a wide range of compressor models and sizes from all major brands. That includes recent models like the Trane CHHB100 compatible with multiple refrigerant types.
The lower cost of sourcing a remanufactured commercial compressor often allows enterprises to make the buy sooner, before output from their existing unit declines too far. Over years, you’ll see a major difference in electricity use with your efficient remanufactured compressor versus an older model that’s slowly failing.
Depending on how many compressors you use, that could save thousands of dollars.
A Remanufactured Commercial Compressor Provides Great Maintainability
The easier a compressor is to work with, the less time you need to spend on maintenance to get desired results.
After all, that’s why semi-hermetic compressors have grown so much more popular than the hermetic style.
Remanufactured commercial compressors are easier to maintain over time because you are not only investing in the unit itself. You are also building a relationship with a team of compressor engineers who will work with you to ensure you get the most value from your investment for many years to come.
When you purchase a compressor from an OEM-affiliated wholesaler, you are at the mercy of the network of service technicians in your area. Some brands have a larger network than others. When you contact a technician, you can’t be sure of the quality of work you will get or of the availability of parts you need.
With remanufactured commercial compressors, you have a direct line to the same experts who have seen your compressor through every aspect of the remanufacturing process. A good remanufacturer will also maintain a full inventory of parts on hand to help you execute on your maintenance goals.
If you’ve been wondering about the environmental impact of your business, going remanufactured is one way to do your part. When it comes to large-scale refrigeration or cooling applications, remanufactured commercial compressors are the greenest choice: Both for your environment and for your budget.
