What’s your plan?
Air Options have devised the three R’s action plan for all who’s air conditioning units are still running on the soon to be banned R22 refrigerant, they are:
Refurbishment is most cost effective, with a variety of different refrigerants that can be dropped into a system so long as the equipment is in good working order and has been well maintained throughout it’s life. This, however is more ideal for commercial and/or larger systems.
Replacement of systems, whether upgrading or installing like for like, is the option we highly recommend. Along with the system being more energy efficient, a Manufacturers warranty, and being inline with current legislation, you will have peace of mind knowing the there will no stoppage time due to a fault with the system.
Remain. If your system is working perfectly, you can continue to use; however, as of January 1st the system will not be supported by the manufacturer and only minor preventative servicing will be permitted, such as filter cleaning etc. If the system develops a leak then the system will be deemed inoperable, leading to refurbishment, replacement, or removal.
