R22 Phase Out

 At the end of 2014 it will be illegal to use R22 to service and  maintain air conditioning equipment.

 If you operate R22 air conditioning systems this ban affects  you as it is now subject to the EC Ozone Regulation No 1005/2009.

Typically, quality well maintained air conditioning systems have a life span of around 15 years. This brings all R22 equipment to its end of life risk zone before 2015.

Failure of old equipment could leave you without cooling and heating and spare parts are likely to be expensive or unavailable.

Taking a planned approach to equipment replacement also means that you could consider other ways of increasing the energy efficiency of your building.

Put simply there are two courses of action open to those operating an ongoing R22 air conditioning system.
• Option 1 - Do nothing until the end of 2014 and the exposure of site shutdown and/or fines.
• Option 2 - Plan a considered and costed strategy in order to offer a controlled solution and negate the risk.

A full system replacement is not always necessary. A partial replacement allows you to reuse as much material as possible, for instance existing pipe work, wiring and power supplies. This not only reduces cost (by up to 55%) but also cuts down on installation time and has less impact on the environment.

Either replacement solution will give you greatly improved efficiency, performance, reliability, lower running costs, lower maintenance costs and reduced C02 emissions.

Confused about all this legislation and red tape?
Airconaire will be happy to advise you on the most cost effective solution when looking to replace existing air-conditioning systems with more environmentally sustainable solutions.
If you would like to assess the cost involved and the savings you can make on your energy bills please call us on 01634 731 807 or [email protected]
