Charging a residential heat pump system with R22 refrigerant

R22 for sale

If you are searching for R22 to buy, the chances are you fit into one of two groups; either you are an HVAC technician or a client who needs a leak in their system repaired. Either way, the search for affordably priced R22 has become difficult for everyone. 

In 1989, Australia ratified the Montreal Protocol, a United Nations treaty widely regarded as the world’s most effective and successful environmental protection agreement. The only treaty with universal ratification covers the complete phase-out of Hydrochlorofluorocarbons (HCFCs) such as R22. 

Since ratifying it, Australia has been a leader in this phase-out, consistently meeting or exceeding all phase-out obligations. The best example, and the one that affects citizens most widely, is the complete end to the import or export of HCFCs and R22 gas for sale by 2016, four years ahead of the Protocol’s schedule. 

This is where some problems may occur for you. Because of the ban, technicians, and their clients, must rely entirely on recycled or reclaimed R22 refrigerant. Hence, the R22 refrigerant price Australia has soared through the roof. Some R22 gas for sale is as high as two hundred dollars per kilogram. This R22 refrigerant price Australia grows exponentially if your system has somewhat frequent leaks, or if it uses more than a kilogram or two of refrigerant. 

That’s why, at Surrey Air, we specialize in retrofitting (or converting) old systems that use R22, so that they run off of alternatives such as R10A or R32 which have significantly lower global warming potential. These hydrofluorocarbons (HFCs) are used by the most popular original equipment manufacturers such as Daikin or Mitsubishi. Retrofitting your systems, whether they be air conditioning units, ducted cooling, large freezers, and sometimes even heating systems, is highly efficient in the long run, with less R22 refrigerant price Australia if there is ever a refrigerant leak or other repair needed. 

Not only does the cost-benefit entice many clients to make the switch, but the impact on the environment. Every time an R22 refrigerated system has a leak; harmful HCFCs are released into the atmosphere. For a lot of people, this is enough to justify changing their system, especially when the cost-benefit is brought up as well. 

Australia has a great reputation for being environmentally conscious. It’s up to all of us to help continue this reputation, and the simple act of changing the refrigerant your air conditioning uses means that you are helping the environment today. Not to mention, it helps your wallet too! 

For R22 refrigerant price Australia retrofitting services hit us up, and we’d love to help.

We had an exceptional experience with the professional team who serviced my heater and evaporative air cooler. They were punctual, provided excellent service, and even went the extra mile by fixing a broken tile on our roof. Highly recommended for their professionalism and attention to detail.

Surrey air came a few weeks ago and serviced my reverse cycle air conditioner for me. They were able to fit me in quickly, there was good communication and the technician arrived on time. The technician was helpful going onto the roof and providing me photos to give to the body corporate re other units that needed attending to.

These guys had the most reasonable call out fee, they were able to attend to fix our issue the day after I contacted them and there was great communication throughout the whole process from booking to the eta of the technicians. They arrived and promptly set to work, getting our cooling back up and running. I would recommend them.
