Mitsubishi Electric braces for decade-long R32 push


We in the UK as an industry take manufacturers statements as balanced, responsible, supported and apply not only to the UK, Europe but the whole world. We trust! there is no political/commercial agenda that tells the AC owner that his equipment life span is x years. Look at the car industry with leaded petrol. There is a good reason why 140 countries including UK & EUROPE etc aligning themselves to the Kigali Amendment. There ia good reason why the French, Italian & Spanish building Regs ensure that it is almost impossible to use Flammables!. The F-Gas regulation DOES not promote Flammable refrigerants! it simply encourages the reduction of Hi GWP. The upcoming ban for AC is 2025, not 2020 and only for split systems with less than 3kg charge. It has excellent exemptions +4 years, relating to safety and a better life cycle emission. We should read it correctly! https://www.spaceair.co.uk/uploads/files/VRF/R32/Extract%20Ban%20on%20F-gas%20gov_uk.pdf Safety has a higher priority than environmental /commercial gains. The Environment gets affected if refrigerant accidentally leaked with R410A but at least it is not going to possibly burn the building!! We must act responsibly. Neil Afram is not anti flammable but anti risks that affect safety.
