R22 was, until 2002, a commonly used refrigerant in cooling and air conditioning equipment. However, recent studies have shown the damage it can cause to the ozone layer, adversely affecting the environment as a result, and new legislation now places restrictions on its use.
From January 2010, it became illegal to use new R22 refrigerant equipment and, from January 2015, the use of all recycled or recovered R22 equipment will also be banned. This could mean the cooling or air conditioning equipment you own could be affected so, here at Alpine Air Conditioning, we are here to help.
Our team of highly experienced professionals can conduct a thorough and exhaustive audit of your existing system, seeing how it complies with the new legislation and advising on any remedial action which needs to be taken as a result. If action is required, we offer comprehensive management throughout the transition, replacing old equipment with modern, more energy efficient units or refitting your current system to use an alternative refrigerant.
