REPLACE - Review

Header Image Bottom Left Bottom Right


Whatever the results of a review, it will allow you to understand the best time to replace your R22 system and plan accordingly.

Put simply, there are two courses of action open to those operating an ageing R22 air conditioning system.

• Option One: Do nothing until the end of 2014 and risk the exposure of site shutdown and/or fines according to EC Ozone Regulation No 1005/2009

• Option Two: Plan a considered and costed strategy, to offer a controlled solution and negate the risk

Option One has no immediate cost implications but exposes your business to the practical and financial risks of a system fault or failure. You will also continue to pay higher running costs of your existing equipment which will be typically double compared to new efficient equipment.

Option Two will reduce running costs and carbon emissions and the risk of downtime to your business, whilst providing a more controllable, comfortable environment. This approach will also help to conform to current legislation such as the EU Energy Performance of Buildings Directive (EPBD), UK building regulations, building certification and air conditioning inspections.
