Honeywell Provides Educators the Key to Understanding Refrigerants

April 24, 2019
The growing movement towards more efficient HVACR equipment, coupled with regulatory changes, have been driving forces in new technologies in the HVACR industry. These new technologies have changed the type of equipment we install, tools we use to perform the job, and refrigerants used in these systems.
The HVACR industry has transitioned in recent years from CFC’s, to HCFC’s to HFC’s to HFO’s. Adding to these changes is the new safety challenge of teaching with flammable refrigerants in the classroom. During this transition, HVACR instructors try to keep apprised of these changes, and incorporate them into their curriculum. However, its often difficult to know if the information one is getting is the best information available.
Honeywell knows the key to refrigerant knowledge begins by getting information from the source. As a global leader in the development and production of high-performance fluorocarbon refrigerants and thermal working fluids, Honeywell wants to assist instructors in meeting the challenges associated with incorporating proper refrigerant education into their classrooms. To help fulfill these goals, they conducted training sessions for instructors during the HVAC Excellence National HVACR Educators and Trainers Conference. In addition, they presented all attendees of the key to refrigerant knowledge.
Honeywell provided all conference attendees, staying at the South Point Hotel, a room key card, containing a special url. This url was created specifically for instructors, to help them access training videos, retrofit resources, refrigerant data, and other important information.
While not everyone in the HVACR industry was able to attend the HVAC Excellence National HVACR Educators and Trainers Conference (HOPEFULLY NEXT YEAR), everyone can access these special resources by visiting In doing so, HVACR instructors can be confident in what they are teaching, as they are getting the information directly from the source.
We invite you to visit where you can gain access to some great resources, to share with your students.
