Replacing Your Old HVAC System? The Eco-friendly Benefits of Recycling It

Replacing Your Old HVAC System? The Eco-friendly Benefits of Recycling It

Old HVAC System

HVAC systems are designed to last years, but yours will inevitably need to be replaced at some point. When that time comes, Heat Relief will not only provide you with the best price, service, and guarantees in the Portland area, but we’ll also take care of responsibly recycling your old system.

The age-old question of whether to repair or replace can apply to everything from cars to computers – and yes, even to HVAC systems. Our experienced Heat Relief technicians will advise you when the costs to repair an older system are simply not worth your investment, and it’s time to move on up to a newer system.

Recycling HVAC systems

When you work with Heat Relief on replacing the heating and cooling system in your Portland area home, we will take care of removal and disposal of your old unit. Many parts that can be recycled, such as:

  • steel, aluminum, brass, and copper components
  • compressors
  • motors
  • coils
  • ductwork

That’s quite a lot of the machine that can be recycled and repurposed!

What you may not know, is that the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) requires licensed HVAC technicians to reclaim the unit’s refrigerant. If allowed to evaporate, it can have a dangerous effect on the ozone layer.

Benefits of recycling HVAC systems

One tangible benefit of recycling HVAC systems is the positive environmental impact of it not being added to a landfill. Refrigerant chemicals release into the atmosphere, contributing to greenhouse gas emissions.

Additionally, when scrap metal and parts can be reused for new machines, that helps to lower the need for raw materials and the pollution associated with raw material excavation.

Finally, when manufacturers resell the recycled product, they can lower fuel emissions from not running their factories at full power.
