Regulations & Compliance

R22 PHASE OUT DATE – 31st DECEMBER 2014.

It is now illegal to sell equipment containing R22 gas and many manufacturers are unable to provide even spare parts for these older systems. You are also unable to buy R22 gas in its original untainted form although some drop in alternatives are available but have never been really been tested with the manufacturers and reports of problems have become apparent.

As a result of these changes, if you have an R22 system and it suffers a gas leak, it will not be possible to repair or re-charge your system after this date. If your unit is your sole source of heating or cooling and you have a failure, you may well be without heating or cooling without a very costly replacement system.

Under the Governments Enhanced Capital Allowance Scheme a company can enjoy financial reward by installing air-conditioning units that qualify for the ECA scheme. A company that makes a trading profit for that financial year will be able to claim 100% of the cost of the air-conditioning equipment and installation from their tax. We offer a wide selection of qualifying air-conditioning equipment from Daikin and Toshiba.
