Installer leaflet

Stay in business! Stop installing R404-A/R507-A!

As part of a broader communications campaign, four leading associations in the heating, ventilation, air conditioning and refrigeration (HVACR) sector – EPEE, AREA, Asercom and EFCTC – have joined forces in an unprecedented effort to call upon European installers to stop using high GWP refrigerants in the equipment they install, in particular R-404A and R-507A.

To this end, the associations have developed a leaflet for installers highlighting the key actions needed to tackle the difficult market situation created by high HFC prices and low availability. The leaflet urges installers to stop using R-404A and R-507A in new equipment, retrofit existing equipment with lower GWP refrigerants, reduce leakages and charge sizes, and recover, recycle and reclaim refrigerants.

“The fact that four industry associations representing different parts of the HVACR sector – installers, OEMs, compressor manufacturers and gas producers – worked together on this leaflet is in itself a very strong message and will hopefully trigger the much-needed acceleration of the “phase-out” of R404A and R507A,” Andrea Voigt, EPEE Director General said.
