All types of commercial and domestic cellar cooling and refrigeration equipment contain fluorinated gases called "F-Gases". F-Gases are man made and are used in a number of different industrial and service sectors. The most commonly used are fluorinated hydrocarbons (HFC’s).
These were virtually un-used before 1990. Since then they have been used to replace Ozone depleting substances such as Chlorofluorocarbons (CFCs & HCFCs) in refrigeration and air conditioning equipment. They are not ozone depleting but contribute to global warming as they are 'green house' gases-i.e. gases in the atmosphere that reflect heat back on to the planet. Legislation came into effect in July 2007, specifying that operators of equipment with over 3Kg of F-Gas have to:
- Ensure all gas leaks are repaired using qualified and certified staff.
- Ensure all repaired gas leaks are checked within one month of the initial repair work being completed.
- Ensure all systems with 3 Kg of refrigerant are fully and professionally leak tested by qualified and certified engineers at regular intervals, as detailed in the regulations.
- Ensure systems a the end of their life have their refrigerant disposed of by qualified and certified engineers.
