The RAC tool calculates the HFC and PFC emissions from the manufacture, servicing, and/or disposal of RAC equipment. The tool offers three methods: A sales based approach for manufacturers and users; a life cycle stage approach for users; and a basic screening approach that is intended to help companies gauge whether or not their emissions merit the use of one of the other, more advanced methods.

Producers and industrial users of RAC equipment have other greenhouse gas sources, such as the fuels used in energy production. All sources that are typically associated with such business are listed below. Please note that the tools listed below are only meant as a guide; some companies may have emissions not listed and may need to see the complete listing of tools to accurately develop their GHG inventory.
