Climate Center stocks R32 in all its branches

Climate Center claims to be the first distributor to stock the low-GWP refrigerant R32 in every branch — amounting to 45 branches nationwide. R32 is a single-component refrigerant with a GWP of 675, considerably lower than the 2088 for R410A. The investment coincides with Daikin and Toshiba launching R32 air-conditioning ranges.

Changes to F-gas Regulations that came into force on 1 January 2015 encourage used to use refrigerants with a lower GWP.

From 2025, any gas with a GWP higher than 750 wil be banned in new split air-conditioning systems with a charge less than 3 kg.
