Converting Refrigerator Gas Using Hydrocarbon Refrigerant

We are one of the few Hydrocarbon companies in Australia with the capacity to convert your existing refrigeration equipment into natural hydrocarbon refrigerants (HCRs).

Hydrocarbon conversions make sense on all fronts financially and environmentally. We can talk you through the entire process, including the initial outlay, the ROI, and the estimate reduction in energy consumption that your Sydney business will experience.

With Hydrocarbon refrigerants readily available in Australia, due to mining and gas processing, we can retrofit your current systems so you don’t have to replace them. This way, you save money almost immediately. Our Technicians will also reduce your carbon footprint and enhance your company’s green credentials.

How much can our Hydrocarbon Company save you?

Because Hydrocarbon refrigeration conversions are highly efficient, they can dramatically reduce your operational energy requirements.

When you convert to hydrocarbon refrigerants, you’ll enjoy a potential energy saving of up to 21% on refrigeration consumption and 34% on air-conditioning costs. This economy is likely to give you an ROI on the cost of conversion in less than a year. Note: the above are both conservative estimates, because we’d rather under promise and over deliver.

Hydrocarbon refrigeration  gas conversions also reduce wear and tear on compressors and parts, meaning less spent on repairs, maintenance and equipment replacement. They’re environmentally safe, they meet all Australian safety standard and are ideal for all HVAC+R commercial applications.

Hydrocarbon Refrigerants = Environmental Benefit.

Eco-friendly Hydrocarbons are replacing the hydrofluorocarbons (HFCs), HCFCS and HFC gas blends traditionally used in air conditioning and gas refrigeration systems. HFCs are being phased out worldwide, due to their contribution to global warming.

Australia began phasing them out in 2018, through caps on import quotas. In future, they will become harder to source, as well as more expensive. Aside from the change in technology, If Big Bear retrofits your equipment with a Hydrocarbon conversion, then ultimately, we’ll get fewer maintenance requests from you in the future based on the reduced wear of parts. This could be one of the reasons many Sydney refrigeration mechanics don’t offer this service, yet we feel it’s the right thing to do in most cases.

Hydrocarbon refrigerants produce very few carbon emissions, which is great news for the planet.

Switch to Natural Gas Refrigerants

When you switch to natural refrigerants, you’ll be in good company. Coles, Woolworths and some of Australia’s leading dairies, wineries and retail outlets are already enjoying big savings on running their chillers, freezers and air conditioners on naturally occurring energy sources & fuel.

Health and Safety

Hydrocarbons are non-toxic. They’re fast becoming the most popular cooling and heating method in Australia due to their low global warming potential, but although they’re climate-friendly and cost-effective refrigerants, there are some risks associated with hydrocarbons. These risks come with the handling of highly flammable liquids and servicing. Because of this, Big Bear’s commitment to regular maintenance from qualified, professional mechanics is essential for worksafe standards. You’ll be given a routine documentation showing that your equipment is serviced and compliant.
