Refrigerant R22 Replacement


From 1st January 2015 it will be illegal to use any HCFCs (including Refrigerant R22) to service RAC equipment – so recycled or reclaimed HCFC may no longer be used.

This refrigerant is now being phased out because of its Ozone Depleting Potential (ODP) and clients need to know what their options are for the future. Direct drop-in replacement refrigerants are available, but for some applications the equipment will need to be upgraded.

Our site surveys are the perfect way to put together an action plan for the removal of refrigerant R22 from your project. By being proactive, you can avoid being left in a situation where you can no longer purchase R22 and your main switch room cooling systems aren’t working properly. A site survey will ensure your HVAC equipment continues to run efficiently.
