Leading Performance Efficiency in Heating
Heat pumps are an essential technology to help enable decarbonization through the electrification of heating. Refrigerant choice is a critical factor in attaining energy efficiency.
The COP improvements of an optimized R-454C heat pump provide additional environmental advantages versus a standard R-290 equipment.
Up to 22% lower indirect emissions.
Direct emissions of R-454C systems represent around 1% of the total CO₂ equivalent system emissions. Increasing the COP by 29% results in a decrease in total emissions by over 21%.

(***) The inherently lower flammability of A2L refrigerants (like R-454C) versus R-290 allows for greater flexibility in system design. The reduced risk of flammability allows for charge sizes up to 12 times higher than propane with A2L´s which provides greater opportunity for system capacity and efficiency optimization.
