The heating, ventilation and air conditioning (HVAC) business faces a number of challenges.
The first is time pressure. If an air conditioning or refrigeration system breaks down, it generally needs to be repaired urgently. So HVAC contractors need reliable, responsive and speedy partners to supply their refrigerant gases.
Environmental pressure is also rising in this sector, fuelled by increasingly strict legislation and consumer demands for greater sustainability. This means that HVAC equipment – especially air conditioning, refrigeration and heat pump technologies – are increasingly switching to more environmentally friendly refrigerant gases offering lower ozone depletion potential (ODP) and lower global warming potential (GWP).
Legislation is also dictating more responsible use of refrigerant gases across the entire lifecycle of HVAC equipment. This is placing the spotlight on smaller charge sizes, reduced leak rates, increased record keeping, improved competence levels among refrigeration and air conditioning engineers and environmentally friendly recovery and destruction methods. This extends to existing installations, where HVAC contractors are often required to retrofit systems and switch to newer refrigerant gases without compromising system performance or safety. In addition, growing environmental awareness and rising power prices are raising the bar for energy efficiency.
