As the HFC phasedown continues HVACR technicians are increasingly encountering A2L refrigerants in the field. It's important to gain a better understanding of A2Ls to maximize safety and assist your customers on installation and service calls.
Thankfully, from a service perspective, the transition from existing refrigerants to A2Ls will not require a major shift in service practices, however, it will require more rigorous attention to servicing fundamentals. Existing recommended best practices for A1 refrigerants will continue to apply—with the addition of a few special considerations, new equipment, and A2L-rated tools. What was ‘best practice’ will now be required.
During this podcast, Chemours Senior Training consultant Don Gillis will provide a detailed overview of important considerations such as understanding manufacturers’ mitigation strategies, flammability criteria, and work-zone area requirements.
