What is R22 and how does it affect you?

R22 refrigerants are widely used within commercial and industrial air-conditioning and refrigeration systems. Research studies have shown that R22 has harmful effects on the ozone layer and has contributed to global warming.

On 1st January 2015 regulations changed to exclude the use of R22 refrigerant, there is a complete ban on R22 refrigerant and it will be illegal to use R22 to service and maintain existing systems. Existing equipment can still be used but is not longer serviceable, so if your old R22 system goes down the impact on your business could be high.

Most R22 systems are coming towards the end of their life expectancy; reliability will decrease, maintenance and running costs will increase and spares availability will become an issue. Choosing to phase out your R22 systems and replace them with modern energy efficient units is more cost effective than repairing and maintaining the old units. Running costs and carbon emissions will be reduced and the overall efficiency of your business improved.
