air conditioning audit and R22 replacement

From 1st January 2010, R22 gas regulations mean it will be illegal to use HCFC gasses such as R22 refrigerant (also known as freon 22 gas and Chlorodifluoromethane, the most commonly used refrigerant gas) when servicing and maintaining air conditioning equipment. Until the 31st December 2014, temporary use of recycled/recovered R22 refrigerant gas is possible, but availability could be limited and costs high. From 1st January 2015, sales or use of recycled/recovered R22 refrigerant gas will be prohibited.

This regulation requires all operators of HCFC refrigeration systems to take 'all precautionary measures practicable' to prevent and minimise leakage. It means that all fixed equipment systems with a refrigerant charge greater than 3kg must have an annual check for leakage. Qualified personnel must carry out this check and are required to properly recover any HCFC refrigerant removed from the system.

Envitae can arrange an audit of your air conditioning equipment and advise on all available options. Our partners, are fully qualified to undertake air conditioning audit and inspection. We will help you develop a corporate strategy to ensure compliance with the new legislation. Should your air conditioning equipment contain R22 refrigerant, likely options to ensure future legal compliance could include R22 gas replacement, a refit or a retrofit. New air conditioning systems may represent the best long-term investment, in which case we will calculate likely energy savings, CO2 emission reductions and the payback period. We will project manage the transition to ensure the smooth integration of new systems and the safe disposal of the R22 refrigerant.
