If you own or operate a commercial building with old heating, ventilating and air conditioning (HVAC) equipment, then you should be aware of the penalties and fees applicable to businesses found with old, harmful refrigerants used in these machines. Old refrigerants such as R-22, which contains the toxic chlorofluorocarbon (CFC), are the main target of environmental polices mandated by the EPA.
Should your commercial building be caught using prohibited refrigerants, you will need to pay hefty fines, or worse, lose your license to operate. If you would like to avoid these unfavorable circumstances, you should start being aware of the options for getting rid of these old and harmful refrigerants.
Hire a professional and specialized team
The recovery, extraction, replacement and disposal of old refrigerants require highly trained and skilled individuals to complete each step of the job with maximum efficacy. Get in touch with us at Refrigerant Services (A sister company of Level One HVAC) and we will help you dispose of old refrigerants in exchange for new, clean and EPA-compliant ones.
Here are some of the programs that you can be part of when you decide to surrender your old refrigerants.
The Buy Back Program
Refrigerant Services is certified and licensed to recover the following commercial grade refrigerants:
- Any old or used R-22
- Any contaminated refrigerant cylinders
- Any burnt cylinders
We strive to help your company be 100% EPA-compliant by paying you a reasonable sum for all the old refrigerants we can collect from you. Every drop collected from your company will be compensated for. This is how the Buy Back Program works.
The Clean Exchange Program
Refrigerant Services also offers new and DOT-certified cylinders in exchange for your old, burnt and expired ones. We want to minimize the amount of wasteful materials used across the industry, which is why we are determined to replace harmful refrigerant cylinders with safer ones.
We accept all cylinders, whether they are full, empty or partially full. In exchange, we will give you clean and certified cylinders according to the size you need. We accept the following sizes of containers:
- 30 lbs.
- 50 lbs.
- 100 lbs.
- 125 lbs.
- 240 lbs.
If you need to rent a tank for bigger cylinders, we can also provide you with a rental tank. Just specify all the details of your size requirements when you talk to one of our representatives during your schedule confirmation. Our trained and licensed team will make use of the latest technology and equipment to drain out every last drop of old refrigerant from your cylinders. Not only that, you can leave all the required EPA documentation and paperwork to us.
Refrigerant Services offers streamlined solutions so you can count on us every step of the way. From scheduling, pickup, consolidation and delivery of these refrigerants, our team will be readily available to assist you.
While other companies will leave the consolidation process to you, we believe that only trained and licensed professionals should handle these old and expired refrigerant containers because of the risk of contamination from the harmful substances in the old cylinders. This is why we will not require you to bring the old cylinders to us. It is our job to ensure that the entire refrigerant recovery process is safe. We take pride in offering on-site recovery, consolidation and pickup services of all types of old and non-compliant refrigerants. We can also buy your old refrigerants from you and compensate for every drop collection. After this step, we will then replace your old refrigerants and cylinders with safer alternatives that are 100% EPA-compliant.
If you are interested in taking part of our special Buy Back Program or Clean Exchange Program, give us a call at 844-PURECFC (787-3232) today. Let us know of a convenient pick-up date for you and we will collect your used refrigerants directly from your commercial building.
