F-gases include the most common refrigerants in use today. The F-gas regulations aim to minimise emissions of these gases, which affect global warming if they escape into the air.
As part of this, there are also regulations on the operators of the equipment and systems that use F-gases. Our operatives are trained and registered with REFCOM to carry out all F-gas regulation related installation and servicing and maintenance. Our registration number is 1000075 and you can check our status at http://www.refcom.org.uk/refcom/company-search.aspx
For stationary refrigeration, air conditioning and heat pump units over 3kg charge (6 kg if hermetic), operators must:
Leak checks are mandatory documented checks on air conditioning and refrigeration equipment. This is to assess how much damage could be caused to the atmosphere if the entire refrigerant was to be released.
Calculating your CO2
The frequency of the test inspections is based around the GWP of the refrigerant, which is then multiplied by the estimated volume contained in each system which then gives you the actual CO2 figure.
How often does a system need leak checking?
To ensure that you are fully aware of what is required, simply call us and we will give you a full picture of your system, what it contains and then offer you a good, affordable maintenance plan that puts your mind fully at rest.
