R22 in air conditioning systems to be banned from 1st January 2015


18th Jul 2014

From 1st January 2015 it will be illegal to use R22 in any HVAC system. If your air conditioning system fails after this date it will have to be replaced.

Given the tendency of many building owners to 'make do and mend', especially during the difficult economic conditions, there must be numerous examples of old equipment that is reaching the end of its operation life cycle, particularly if it has not been maintained properly. Whilst the thought of more expenditure on new equipment might be hard to swallow the benefits will be lower fuel bills as modern equipment is far more energy efficient. This might be the time to have any existing R22 equipment serviced to prolong its life - phone us on 01202 330630 to arrange a time
