Find an HFC-free Fridge: A Buyers Guide

We are compiling a list of climate-friendly fridges available in the United States, where super pollutant hydrofluorocarbons (HFCs) are still used widely despite the availability of HFC-free alternatives. HFC-free fridges use a refrigerant, R-600a or isobutane. R-600a has a very low global warming potential (GWP) of 3 compared with R-134a, the typical HFC used in fridges, which has a GWP around 1,400! R-600a is also very energy efficient, reducing your electric bill and even more emissions.

Want to find out if a fridge not on our list is HFC-free? Whether you’re shopping for a new fridge, or just want to know what refrigerant is in yours, it’s easy to find out. All fridges are labelled with a sticker located on the inside compartment that lists which refrigerant is used along with other manufacturing information. If you see “R600a” on this sticker, congratulations, you found an HFC-free fridge!

This list is not comprehensive and will continue to be updated over time. You can submit additions by emailing info@eia-global.org with the brand, model number, and a picture of the sticker label.
