How bad is your air-conditioner for the planet?

The New York Times recently published an article: How bad is your air-conditioner for the planet? In the article, the New York Times articulated the risks of greenhouse gas emissions contributed by hydrofluorocarbons (HFCs).

Many HVAC manufacturers are currently working on the next generation of HVAC refrigerants that will contribute less to global warming than conventional HFC refrigerants. In the meantime, as outlined by the article, an air-conditioner in proper working order has a lower probability of releasing HFCs into the atmosphere.

EcoFactor’s HVAC Performance Monitoring (HPM) software, delivered as part of the EcoFactor SaaS portfolio, detects underperforming and degraded HVAC systems. EcoFactor’s HPM service analyzes regular HVAC system behavior and uncovers evidence of HVAC system anomaly. It can detect a wide range of HVAC faults without the need for hardware beyond your web-connected thermostat – from dirty filters to low refrigerant, and many others. As a SaaS solution, HPM runs in the background with no disruption to the customer unless an issue is detected. Once an issue is identified, the EcoFactor platform provides the ability to alert partners or end-consumers directly, depending on the use case.

EcoFactor’s channel partners can seamlessly integrate EcoFactor’s HPM service into their offerings. For more on EcoFactor’s HPM service, do not hesitate to contact: sales@ecofactor.com
