Why R32?

The F-Gas regulations will bring about significant changes to the air conditioning industry in the coming few years. This will affect end users, facility managers, specifiers and installers alike. Due to the landmark ruling to reduce F-Gas emissions by 79% between 2015 and 2030 by cutting the availability of HFC's with a high Global Warming Potential (GWP), we are likely to see R410A gas phased out and replaced by R32. This makes R32 the better choice for future servicing and maintenance. The R32 range have generally more efficient systems than the older R410a machines and there are plenty to choose from across all the top brands. 

The Technical Bit..

R32 is a single Component, zero ODP gas with a GWP of 550, significantly less than R410a's 1980. It is classified as A2, or mildly flammable, under ASHRAE classifications. Ironically, R410a is a mixture of R32 and R125 - the R125 suppressing R32's flammability. 

The Benefits of R32 In Summary
