Mitsubishi offers free F-gas guide

UK: Mitsubishi Electric has released a free, CPD-accredited guide to working with the F-gas regulations.

Designed to help anyone involved in air conditioning understand how the F-gas regulations will affect them and their equipment, the guide is free to download.

“There is a lot being said about refrigerants and F-gas at the moment, so we wanted to produce a useful guide for anyone involved in the air conditioning industry,” explained Graham Temple, marketing manager for the company’s range of split air conditioning systems.

“People need to be aware that there are some actions that are imminent but there is also plenty of time to plan for future milestones in the F-gas phase down process.”

The guide looks at the background to the regulations and why they have come about; how the phase down is planned to operate and what this means for both air conditioning systems and their owners.

“We want to help installers, consultants and building operators understand how the F-Gas Regulations will affect them both now and into the future,” Temple added.
