R22 – What is it all about

R22 has been phased out, have you prepared ?

H.C.F.C – Hydrochlorofluorocarbon better known to us as R22 Refrigerant has been commonly used in Air Conditioning systems until 2004, It is estimated that up to 20,000 R22 systems could be still operating in the UK.

Question to ask yourself: Was the air conditioning in your premises installed before 2002?

If you still are operating R22 systems the shortages and delays can impact on

• Normal operation of HVAC systems
• Refurbishment programmes
• Energy efficiency

If you do nothing about it you run the risk of

• System Failure
• Increased Running Costs
• Higher Co2 emissions


So what are the options ?

Drop in substances

You can retro fit the system using a drop in replacement however this can result in

1. Increased Running Costs
2. High Degradation of system components
3. Reduced Capacity
4. No warranty
5. High initial outlay

System Replacement

You can replace the system this removes the risk of having potentially redundant equipment. New systems are also highly efficient using the latest technologies therefore reducing fuel consumption – saving you money.
