The choice of refrigerant serves as a model for environmental care. At Geerlofs Refrigeration, you will only find natural cooling agents such as ammonia, carbon dioxide or an ammonia/carbon dioxide combination and synthetic cooling agents with low GWP values, such as R134a and R407c.

Cooling is nothing more than transferring heat. Often this heat is disposed outside. But why not use this heat for the floor heating of your offices, or to heat the water you would like to use for the production process. This is not only a matter of transferring the heat to a useful thing, but also an intelligent way to use this heat optimally.
What are the possibilities and the limits? In a recent major project, Geerlofs Refrigeration has been able to build a refrigerated vegetable distribution centre, without the need to us any equipment to heat the building: all heat for the offices and for keeping for instance packaging material storage frost-free comes from the cooling installation.
You can have your installation and its performance checked regularly with the Geerlofs Energy Scan. We analyse the cooling installations and give advice on possible points for improvement.
