Section 2: Individual LEED Credit Reviews
Currently, the most efficient vapor compression
chillers utilize HCFC refrigerants. In some
projects, the pursuit of non-ozone-depleting
equipment may therefore limit the building's
overall energy efficiency and result in a point
tradeoff in the project's LEED rating. This issue
should be reviewed on a project-by-project basis.
None identified (with construction cost impacts).
