R22 Refrigerant Phase Out

There are still air conditioning units in the UK urgently in need of replacement due to changes in industry legislation.

Units which depend on the banned HCFC R22 – a refrigerant which depletes atmospheric ozone levels – must be replaced as part of the R22 Phase-Out.

Is yours one of them?

Timeline Leading To R22 Phase Out:

  • Production and supply of new air conditioning systems which depend on HCFCs (such as R22) was banned in 2004.
  • Legislation banned the supply of R22 refrigerant used to service equipment from 31st December 2009.
  • Only reclaimed or recycled R22 refrigerant was permitted from January 2010 until 31 December 2014.
  • Systems operating on R22 refrigerant were classed as “not serviceable” from December 2014.
  • A complete ban of R22 refrigerant, including reclaimed or recycled became effective from 31st of December 2014.
