Environmental issues are now becoming regular headline news and every industry should now be taking steps to tackle the potential implications we could all face in the future.

For over the past decade Aircare have been supplying heat pump equipment energy rated A/A, A+/A+ (or better) minimising energy use and emissions, however even though the refrigerants available are environmentally friendly they still have a GWP (Global Warming Potential).

Aircare is now offering clients the option of using natural refrigerants including R32 based on methane, this refrigerant is not environmentally damaging and has a very low GWP (Global Warming Potential).  Over the past few months Aircare have installed many systems using R32 with no problems encountered and positive client feedback.

CO2 (R744 ) will soon be offered as an option on industrial plant, this natural refrigerant which is pure carbon dioxide has zero effect on the environment with an insignificant GWP of 1.

R744 operates at extremely high pressures and is unlike any refrigerant commonly used in the HVACR industry although CO2/R744 has been around for over a century.  To ensure Aircare is ready for the “natural refrigerant revolution” our Consultant Engineers are attending CO2/R744 technical training courses this month, this will ensure Aircare remains “ahead of the game” and we can offer clients environmentally engineered solutions at the design stage.

Brexit Update

posted by | Comments Off on Brexit Update

With little over one month to the deadline it certainly appears there is a stalemate situation with UK/Europe negotiations, and differing opinions with no definitive agreement between the UK’s main political parties.  This means a “no deal” Brexit is a high possibility, or a Brexit delay with more unwanted uncertainty, or put bluntly two wasted years of arguing and incompetence from both sides (UK and EU including all of the UK’s political parties) with next to nothing achieved at the eleventh hour and UK/EU businesses simply expected to battle through.

Again many customers and clients have asked what the implications are of a “no deal” and what effect this may have on the services Aircare provide, the plant and equipment Aircare supply and current legislation. 

Brexit, regardless of the final outcome, will have zero effect on the services Aircare provide and our main plant and equipment suppliers (manufacturing in the UK and Asia) have confirmed Brexit with have little adverse effect.  However all of this makes the assumption there will be no or minimal border disruption for the import of components and spare parts.  Unfortunately this looks like a “wait and see” scenario with probable short term emergency measures put in place to ensure the undisrupted flow of goods with minimal delays.

Aircare also considers there will be no immediate or short term changes with current legislation concerning CE marking, plant/building regulation, ISO, plant/equipment standards, F-Gas, Gas-Safe, Health & Safety etc., the current status quo must remain in place as, put simply, there is nothing to replace it with at time of writing.

Aircare can assure all our customers and clients that “we are ready” for whatever outcome and will continue to provide service as normal, should we encounter problems with components sourced from the EU we will work to find alternate solutions.  We will update our clients and customers as necessary as the Brexit process unwinds.
