CONFUSED ABOUT COMPLIANCE? Join the club!
How can a supplier of Extruded Poly-Styrene claim compliance with the Federal Energy Independence and Security Act of 2007? Well… by using a “Fresh R-Value” for a material that is not used in manufacturing of walk-in panels at its “fresh” state, but in a pre-formed board of insulation material which drops well below federal standards within 180 days. If you review their literature, that is a drop from the fresh value of 8.1 to 5.7 at 180 days.

Kool Star’s poly-urethane foam is actually “grown” in the metal panels. With the foam being activated behind an impermeable metal skin there is no K-Factor drift and the foam retains its “fresh” value over the life of the panel.

Don’t be fooled by manipulation of data, get the facts and make the choice to fully comply with the intent of the law…

CHANGES IN CEC REQUIREMENTS confirmed April 7th 2009 by The California Energy Commission. A spokesman for the CEC has confirmed the adoption of Federal Standards for California, and has stated that “The California Energy Commission is working to publish amended regulations that reflect this change, and has unfortunately been delayed in doing so. This delay does not affect the effective dates of the federal regulations as they have already been adopted as federal law.” Based on this confirmation Kool Star no longer will require 5” panels be supplied in California, this will now be at the option of the customer.

R-22 REFRIGERANT PHASE OUT deadline is January 1, 2010. Kool Star will start the transition of our inventoried equipment July 1st, 2009 to R404a for all current R-22 evaporators and condensing units. Low temperature equipment will continue to use R404a refrigerant and will remain unchanged. If you have a preference of refrigerant, please specify it on your quotation request, otherwise our in-stock equipment will be used and our inventory replaced with R404a when replenished. R-22 will be available for the next several months on a special order basis. Lead times for R-22 will be 3-5 weeks depending on model.
