The 2014 F–Gas Regulations will bring about significant changes to the air conditioning industry, affecting end users, facilities managers, specifiers and installers alike.
This landmark ruling has one key objective: to reduce F–Gas emissions by 79% between 2015 and 2030, by cutting the availability of hydrofluorocarbons (HFCs) with a high Global Warming Potential (GWP). It’s now up to everyone to make a real ‘green commitment‘ – from manufacturers to installers, and managers to owners of air conditioning and refrigeration equipment.
It’s time to look at alternatives, like R32. Already making up 50% of the existing R410A refrigerant found in many current air conditioning systems, R32 has a GWP of 675 (one third that of R410A), is highly energy efficient and is easy to recycle. Plus, the volumetric capacity of R32 is around 20% higher than that of R410A, which means system refrigerant volumes are lower.
R32: The Benefits:
– Low GWP of 675
– High efficiency refrigerant
– Less refrigerant volume requirement compared to R410A
– Affordable & readily available
– A single component refrigerant
– Easy to handle, reuse and recycle
– Used in our newest, state–of–the–art products
