Solstice® HFO refrigerants drive heating and cooling efficiency in commercial buildings.  

Buildings are responsible for 40% of global energy consumption and 36% of greenhouse gas emissions. Moving toward renewable energy and eliminating fossil fuels in buildings is key to reducing emissions, lowering energy costs and tackling climate change. Honeywell Solstice® HFO refrigerants use scroll, oil-free or screw technology to meet the requirements of air-cooled and water-cooled chillers and heat pumps.

Why choose Solstice® HFO Refrigerants for your commercial building?

Lower operating costs 

Reduce your energy bills by replacing your natural gas-dependent boiler with an energy-efficient heat pump or an integrated heating and cooling heat pump. While Solstice® HFO refrigerants provide higher efficiency than gas boilers, Solstice® GBA and LBA foams provide effective roof and wall insulation that helps reduce energy bills and complies with the EU Ecodesign Directive. In addition, by being more energy efficient, they reduce your building’s carbon footprint and conserve natural resources.

Lower your footprint 

Decarbonise your heating and cooling systems by moving to a single, ultra-low GWP system that eliminates the use of fossil fuel in your building and enables regulatory compliance. Under the EU Green Deal, some European countries have banned fossil fuel gas boilers in new buildings and applied extra tax on equipment that uses high GWP refrigerants. With GWP as low as 1, Solstice® HFO refrigerants are significantly greener than R-134a (GWP=1430) and R-410A (GWP=2088) refrigerants, leading to a 99% reduction in CO2 emissions. Moreover, Solstice® HFO refrigerants molecules have zero ozone depleting potential and a short atmospheric life, reducing environmental impact and facilitating regulatory compliance.

Improves safety

Solstice® HFO refrigerants are classified in safety groups A1 (non-flammable) or A2L (mildly flammable), making them significantly safer than alternatives such as propane, which is classified as A3 (highly flammable). This brings peace of mind to end users who benefit from a safer indoor environment as well as building contractors who benefit from lower maintenance, insurance and logistics costs.
