R22 is a refrigerant gas which was used as part of the refrigeration cycle of air conditioning systems. Being a hydrochlorofluorocarbon (HCFC), a greenhouse gas, studies show that the R22 gas used in air conditioning systems have an increasing warming effect on the planet and between 2007 and 2012, global emissions of HCFCs increased by more than half.
As a consequence of the detrimental affect R22s have on the ozone layer, international and EU regulation have been phasing out the use of R22s in air conditioning units. Production of air conditioning system that use R22 gas stopped in 2003 and in 2010 the use of new R22 was banned. Existing R22 air conditioning systems could be serviced with reclaimed R22 gas until 2015, when it became illegal to use the ozone-depleting refrigerant gas R22 in air conditioning and heat pump systems.
Quality R22 replacement services
If your organisation operates older air conditioning systems, it could be possible that the unit uses R22 refrigerant gas. Being specialists in the design and installation of HVAC systems, Climatix Group can replace your R22 air conditioning system with a newer, more environmentally-friendly model.
If you would prefer to update your existing air conditioning unit rather than installing a new one, our team of experienced and professional air conditioning engineers can use drop-in gases that are ozone-friendly, such as R422D and R417A, to replace the R22 gas. However, if your system is old, it may prove more cost-effective to replace it with a new, efficient and eco-friendly model.
