The Air-Conditioning, Heating, and Refrigeration Institute (AHRI) launched a new Web site, www.PhaseOutFacts.org, to reduce confusion regarding the phaseout of HCFC refrigerants to enable better decision making and to improve compliance with refrigerant laws and regulations.
AHRI’s Chemicals and Refrigerant Reclaimers product section, which is comprised of chemical producers, reclaimers, and equipment manufacturers, found that many people are unaware or misinformed about the rules and regulations governing the phaseout, AHRI said. The section created the site to serve as an all-encompassing resource on the issue.
The site will be frequently updated with the latest news on decisions being made by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency regarding refrigerants, and with content specifically aimed at equipment owners, contractors, and technicians who purchase and handle refrigerants, and the wholesalers who sell it.
The site also includes a "Get Answers" feature that allows visitors to ask questions of trusted experts.
