Migali® New Green HydroCarbon Systems

In 2017, Migali® will be phasing out most refrigeration products using traditional freon systems and transition over to green hydrocarbon refrigerants. Our new refrigeration systems use all natural, non-toxic hydrocarbons such as R290 and R600. hydrocarbons have nearly zero global warming potential and up to 40% of energy savings. Not only do hydrocarbons help fight climate change, they also save you lots of money on your electric bill. Migali hydrocarbon models are marked “HC” in the suffix of the model number. Shop today, give mother earth a hug, and save!


Migali® Energy Star 4.0

The newest Energy Star 4.0 standards demand considerable feats of engineering to achieve. Migali has an array of Energy Star 4.0 certified models. Each Energy Star 4.0 model greatly reduces your carbon footprint and saves you considerable money on you electric bill. Many US States even offer lucrative cash rebates for buying commercial Energy Star products. See if you state offers rebates here: Energy Star Rebate Finder


Migali® Pledges to Plant-A-Tree with Every Product Sold

Migali will plant one tree for every product sold; that’s tens of thousands of trees being planted throughout the globe by Migali in 2017. Our hope is to one day plant enough trees to entirely off-set each product’s lifetime carbon footprint.

  • Migali has partnered with EarthDay.Org’s Trees for the Earth Campaign with the goal to plant 7.8 billion trees by 2020…one for every person projected to be on earth.
  • Trees combat climate change by absorbing as much as 48 pounds of carbon dioxide per year and can sequester 1 ton of carbon dioxide by the time it reaches 40 years old.
  • Trees are the lungs of the earth. In one year an acre of mature trees can provide enough oxygen for 18 people.
  • Trees absorb odors and pollutant gases (nitrogen oxides, ammonia, sulfur dioxide and ozone) and filter particulates out of the air by trapping them on their leaves and bark.
  • Trees cool cities by up to 10°F, by shading our homes and streets, breaking up urban “heat islands” and releasing water vapor into the air through their leaves.
  • Trees conserve energy. Three trees placed strategically around a single-family home can cut summer air conditioning needs by up to 50 percent. By reducing the energy demand for cooling our houses, we reduce carbon dioxide and other pollution emissions from power plants.
  • Trees conserve water. Shade from trees slows water evaporation from thirsty lawns. Most newly planted trees need only fifteen gallons of water a week. As trees transpire, they increase atmospheric moisture.
  • Trees reduce runoff by breaking rainfall thus allowing the water to flow down the trunk and into the earth below the tree. This prevents stormwater from carrying pollutants to the ocean. When mulched, trees act like a sponge that filters this water naturally and uses it to recharge groundwater supplies.
  • Trees help to prevent soil erosion on hillsides or stream slopes, trees slow runoff and hold soil in place.
  • Studies have shown that patients with views of trees out their windows heal faster and with less complications. Children with ADHD show fewer symptoms when they have access to nature. Exposure to trees and nature aids concentration by reducing mental fatigue.
