Air Conditioning and Refrigeration

Cooling

We can install, maintain and repair air conditioning systems or refrigeration equipment used in manufacturing and production. Temporary cooling can be installed where longer term remedial works are required.

From 1 Jan 2015 it is illegal to use virgin hydrochlorofluorocarbons (HCFCs) such as R-22. This was the most commonly used refrigerant in older systems. Failed systems will need to be replaced.

From 1 January 2015 sales or use of recycled/recovered R-22 will be prohibited. These systems will have to be replaced when they fail and cannot be repaired.

The regulation also states that all fixed systems with a refrigerant charge greater than 3kg will require an annual check for leakage.
