Goodman’s new facility was designed with the same energy-efficiency mentality as our products. It includes an energy management system, a brilliant white roof to reflect the Texas heat, energy efficient LED lights to reduce energy consumption, and a flood control retention pond and wastewater treatment system to recycle water for landscape irrigation.


Goodman’s office interiors are currently  LEED Gold certified. LEED certified buildings promote renewable and clean energy, save money and resources, and have a positive impact on the health of occupants.  Learn More

Energy Responsibility

Refrigerant is a medium for conveying heat. 

Air conditioners transfer heat while circulating refrigerant between the indoor and outdoor units. 

Although there are various types of refrigerants, R-32 is a new refrigerant currently receiving the most interest.

R-32 is a next generation refrigerant that efficiently carries heat and has lower environmental impact.

Because R-32 efficiently conveys heat, it can reduce electricity consumption up to approximately 10% compared to that of air conditioners using refrigerant R-22. Furthermore, compared to the refrigerants widely used today such as R-22 and R-410A, R-32 has a global warming potential (GWP) that is one-third lower and is remarkable for its low environmental impact.


Refrigerant Trends

Various refrigerants have been used in air conditioners until now. Regulations have increasingly become stricter from greater consideration for the global environment because of the Montreal Protocol in 1987 and the Kyoto Protocol in 1997, resulting in a shift to refrigerants with even lower environmental impact.

Although the mainstream refrigerant R-410A has an ozone depletion potential (ODP) of 0, its global warming potential (GWP) still remains an issue.

While R-32 also has an ozone depletion potential of 0, the refrigerant has only approximately 1/3 of the GWP of R-410A. Consequently, investigation of this promising next generation refrigerant has increased.

However, because R-32 had been an extremely difficult refrigerant to handle, its use was not practical until now. Goodman became the world’s first company to succeed in applying R-32 to air conditioners by leveraging its expertise as the only manufacturer that develops and manufactures both air conditioners and refrigerants.

Currently, R-410A is the refrigerant most commonly used in developed countries. However, if all R-410A were converted to R-32, the impact to global warming from HFCs in 2030 would be reduced by the CO2 equivalent of approximately 800 million tons (19%) compared to the continued use of R-410A.*2
