R22 Refrigerant gases

Important information regarding the phase out of R22 refrigerant gases in air conditioning units and how these new regulations affect you.

Since the end of 2003, the import or production of new air conditioning systems using environmentally harmful R22 refrigerant gases was banned under Government and EU legislation.

Since Jan 2010 it has been illegal to use virgin R22 gas for maintaining or servicing existing air conditioning units and from Dec 2014 there will be an outright ban on all R22 refrigerant gases used in air conditioning systems as the EU takes further measures to reduce harmful carbon emissions.

If your air-conditioning system is more than 7 years old, it is almost certain that you will be using an R22 gas, so please don’t let yourself get caught out. 

Whilst businesses can legally continue to use reclaimed/recycled R22 gas for maintenance in air conditioning systems, you should be aware of these changes.

The BRA (British Refrigerant Association) predicts drastic shortages of recycled R22 gases in the next few years and with hundreds of thousands of air conditioners in the UK having to be replaced, now is a good time to consider how this could impact on your motorhome.
