Refcom investigating 'short-sighted' R410A sale restrictions

Organisation looking into reports of rationing of AC refrigerant despite a lack of alternatives on the market
 
Refrigeration registration body Refcom is investigating claims that some refrigerant wholesalers are rationing R410A to contractors, while still holding large supplies of the higher GWP refrigerant R404A. The organisation hopes that an industry-wide effort to curb reliance on R404A would allow the wider market to better prepare for surging refrigerant prices.
 
Graeme Fox, head of Refcom said that while “most wholesalers and contractors” had heeded the industry advice to encourage transition to lower-GWP gas products where possible - thus ensuring that F-Gas quota is still available for use with applications where there are few or no alternatives ? it wasn’t universally being applied across the UK supply chain.
