What does this mean for you?
Cost and Availability
Currently the price of R22 is 7X the cost of current refrigerants (R407C and R410A) and increasing every day, AND many supply houses are limiting the quantity per sale to avoid stock piling. Reclaimed R22 will be available after 2020, but its price is expected to increase.
Options to Eliminate R22 at Your Facility
What can you do if you currently have Data Center Air Conditioners with R22? Now is the time to plan for the future. You essentially have 3 choices:
- Stick it out with R22 knowing that future repairs will be expensive
- Retrofit the unit with a new refrigerant…This is not recommended due to potential incompatible piping, devices, loss of capacity, and a decrease in efficiency
- Replace the units with new compliant refrigerants units that are designed to deliver higher efficiencies. The Vertiv™ Liebert® DSE is a great choice.
