You may have heard about R32 but do you know the reasons why this next generation refrigerant is so important?

A quick round up of the multiple benefits this new refrigerant brings.


What is R32?

R32 is one of many refrigerants used in air conditioning.  It has replaced the commonly used R22.

What are the benefits?

The environment

R32 has a smaller impact on the environment.  Offering zero Ozone Depletion Potential (ODP) and a Global Warning Potential (GWP) that is lower than other refrigerants used in air conditioning.

Energy saving efficiencies

Increased efficiency means electricity usage of your air conditioning units can be reduced by up to 20%.  Widely used in Japan, India and Australia, it is estimated that in Japan alone over 10 million R32 air conditioning units have been installed.


R32 is a class 2L refrigerant and these present the lowest risk of the 3 flammable categories used in air conditioning units.  Safety is increased with regular maintenance but the addition of R32 usage reduces risk greatly.

Company values

If you are a company that is serious about Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) R32 will help you lower your carbon footprint.
