In addition to placing strains on electricity costs, refrigeration & air conditioning pose a threat to the environment and to human health, primarily as contributors to global warming.
Port City Airconditioning is committed to continually improve its environmental performance, prevent pollution and be increasingly responsible to minimise and control waste.
Our solutions take into account AS/NZS 4965-2008 which specifies the conditions on which the capacity and energy consumption of Close Control Air Conditioners. This means they comply with the Minimum Energy Performance Standards stipulated by the government.
All our service technicians undergo environmental awareness training to educate them on their responsibilities, communications procedures and requirements, incident response procedures and integration of environmental management and health and safety.
Our management strategies include, prohibition, moving or Minimising certain activities to prevent or minimise impact as well as implementing control measures that are designed to prevent or minimise adverse environmental impacts.
The biggest environmental concern with the HVAC trade in general is the release of refrigerant gases to the atmosphere which contributes to global warming and the degradation of our ozone layer. The Port City Airconditioning "Refrigerant Risk Management Plan" is design to educate, deter and police the responsible handling of refrigerants amongst our technicians. We are proud to say that we exceed the ARCTICK criteria for responsible handling of refrigerants.
