R22 is a type of refrigerant gas that is used in chillers and industrial refrigerant plants, however, it has been found that this refrigerant is harmful or can negatively impact the ozone layer. The UK government has passed a new legislation that makes R22 refrigerant illegal from January 2015, so that it can no longer be used to maintain and service air conditioning systems.
As a result, companies are phasing out air conditioning equipment that uses R22 refrigerant. This is a much better option than replacing the refrigerant, which could cause the equipment to perform poorly and also make the equipment maintenance part costly.
If your business is using air conditioning and refrigeration equipment that uses R22 refrigerant, this legislation will have a profound effect on you and your business. You will have to switch over to new air conditioning and refrigeration equipment that uses refrigerants, such as R404A, which do not cause the ozone layer to deplete, and also are more energy-efficient when compared to R22.
