Will the R22 phase-out affect you?

The clock is ticking!  R22 gas is the most commonly used refrigerant in air conditioning systems, and the forthcoming ban will affect many organisations when it comes into effect on 1st January 2015. Phasing out the use of R22 is similar to the banning of CFCs back in the '90s.  It’s all to do with saving the planet and the depletion of the ozone layer. Use of the equipment will still be allowed but no service or maintenance will be permitted if it requires breaking into the refrigerant circuits.
