We are excited to celebrate World Refrigeration Day! Established in 2018 as June 26 annually, this global event seeks to promote the significant role of refrigeration, air conditioning and heat-pump systems. Refrigeration is essential to safety and comfort in modern life. For example, we store and transport food and medicine safely in air-conditioned facilities and vehicles. Ambient temperatures don’t have the final say on where we live, work, play and travel. And, of course, as we’re proud to say at Mitsubishi Electric Trane HVAC US (METUS), highly-efficient heat pumps keep us comfortable in any season and climate.
The 2019 theme is “diversity,” referring to diversity of applications and technologies as well as the diversity of careers and people that make modern refrigeration possible. If you want to follow along on social media, the hashtag is #WREFD19.
Industry and professional associations from around the world have come together to support World Refrigeration Day including:
- United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP) OzonAction
- The Institute of Refrigeration (UK)
- The International Institute of Refrigeration (France)
- ASHRAE (USA)
- EPEE (Belgium)
- Rossoyuzholodprom, APIC (Russia)
As a leader in the split-ductless and Variable Refrigerant Flow (VRF) industry, we know the societal, economic and wellness benefits of energy-efficient HVAC systems. We are proud that Mitsubishi Electric UK and Trane® are sponsors in this year’s event. Join us in celebrating this milestone for the heating and cooling industry!
