F-Gas

The problem of fluorinated greenhouse gases

When it comes to global warming, the effect F-gases (such as HFCs, PFCs and SF6) can be greater than carbon dioxide. So now EU Regulations of 2006 mean that many commercial, industrial and public sector organisations will have legal obligations with regard to management and control of F-gas.

Contact Clean Air

Since 2007, operators of stationary air conditioning, refrigeration and heat pump equipment have been subject to regulations aimed at reducing fluorinated greenhouse gases (F-gases). The regulations cover containment, record-keeping, inspection and testing for leakages, and the use of properly certified personnel to recover gases.

Clean Air can help

Problems can be avoided through expert system design, service and maintenance, which we will, of course, provide. We can also audit your system and arrange inspections to ensure you meet your F-gas obligations. Our engineers are fully trained to work with refrigerants and will be able to advise on whatever action is required.
