Specially designed software to help refrigeration and air conditioning contractors manage their projects and track refrigerant usage is available to Refcom members.
Launched during the HVACR Show at London’s Excel exhibition centre, this versatile new software platform is also designed to make it easier for firms to remain compliant with F Gas Regulations, which continue to tighten every year.

Refcom, which is managed by the Building Engineering Services Association (BESA), is the UK’s largest F gas register for the refrigeration and air conditioning sectors. It works with the Environment Agency to ensure the F Gas Regulations are properly enforced and refrigerant reclamation carried out and now accounts for more than 80% of mandatory company certificates covering the UK refrigerant handling market.
Every Refcom member will automatically be able to claim one free user licence to use the new software, which has been developed in partnership with the specialist job management software firm Joblogic.
The member offer represents a considerable free of charge enhancement for Refcom registered firms with the package value totalling more than the three-year cost of F gas certification fees (savings of £30 a month).
The software includes features for tracking individual refrigerant bottles; automated logbook record keeping; detailed data analysis; and storage of service records and certificates. The Joblogic system also automatically generates customer records; all of which enables full reporting and recording of F gas related work to help firms meet their obligations for audits and inspections.
F gas data is captured by Joblogic’s system every time an engineer uses the software in the field. This will give contractors all the reporting and analysis they need “at the click of a button”.
This software upgrade follows Refcom’s launch of a simplified process for checking company registrations last year via a new search facility on its website (www.refcom.org.uk) that allows suppliers to check customers’ credentials by both company name and/or F gas certificate number.
