REPLACE - Replace

Meet energy issues head on by taking a commercially viable, planned approach.

However you view the issue of replacing R22 air conditioning, it is clear that having a plan is pivotal to a successful outcome. Fundamentally there are three choices:

1. Use a drop in refrigerant in the existing system
2. Replace the entire system and pipework
3. Replace only the indoor and outdoor units and re-use existing pipework, control wiring and power wiring

All three have advantages and disadvantages and each application is different. To learn more about these please read ‘The Case for Replace’ document or contact us direct.

When you decide to replace your equipment, you will need to consider legislation which is in place to minimise energy consumption and provide safeguards to minimise refrigerant leakage. The EU Energy Performance of Buildings Directive (EPBD), UK building regulations and building certification all drive the requirement for efficient buildings. There are also key drivers such as the Carbon Trust who offer a tax relief incentive through the Enhanced Capital Allowance (ECA) scheme to help purchase new efficient equipment.
