EARTH DAY: How Logan Services Recycles Old HVAC Equipment
Today is Earth Day! Here at Logan Services, we understand the importance of doing our part to keep our planet clean.
DID YOU KNOW?
Read on below to learn about HOW we recycle and do our part to protect our ecosystem.
STEP 1: Remove The A/C Refrigerant
Your old air conditioner has refrigerant in it that can cause harm to the environment if not disposed of properly. Our team will remove the refrigerant from the old HVAC system and store it in a recovery tank. This ensures that CFCs (cholorofluorocarbons) & CFHCs (hydrochloroflucarbons) aren't released. These ozone-depleting compounds can negatively impact the Earth's protective ozone layer and should be removed with caution before recycling cooling equipment.
STEP 2: Haul Away Old Heating/Cooling Equipment
We often get asked, "will you haul away the old ac and furnace?" -- that answer is YES, and at no cost to you. When our installation team replaces an HVAC system for a home, we bring the old furnace and AC unit that we have removed back to our office. By doing so, we eliminate the burden for our customers of disposing of the old system.
STEP 3: Take HVAC Equipment To Metal Recycling Facility
In our Dayton, Columbus, and Cincinnati communities, metal scrappers pick up the old HVAC units to safely disassemble. Once properly dismantled, they take the material to a local metal recycling facility. Most metal can be recycled, and repurposing the material is better for the environment than allowing it to sit in a landfill.
