Why R32?

The 2014 F–Gas Regulations will bring about significant changes to the air conditioning industry, affecting end users, facilities managers, specifiers and installers alike. This landmark ruling has one key objective: to reduce F–Gas emissions by 79% between 2015 and 2030, by cutting the availability of hydro fluorocarbons (HFCs) with a high Global Warming Potential (GWP). It's now up to everyone to make a real 'green commitment' – from manufacturers to installers, and managers to owners of air conditioning and refrigeration equipment. It's time to look at alternatives, like R32. Already making up 50% of the existing R410A refrigerant found in many current air conditioning systems, R32 has a GWP of 675 (one third that of R410A), is highly energy efficient and is easy to recycle. Plus, the volumetric capacity of R32 is around 20% higher than that of R410A, which means system refrigerant volumes are lower.

R32: The Benefits:

  • Low GWP of 675
  • High efficiency refrigerant
  • F–Gas phasedown compliant
  • Less refrigerant volume requirement compared to R410A
  • Affordable & readily available
  • A single component refrigerant
  • Easy to handle, reuse and recycle
  • Used in our newest, state–of–the–art products
