AHRI Launches Web Site on HCFC Refrigerants Phaseout
In an effort to reduce confusion regarding the phaseout of HCFC refrigerants, The Air-Conditioning, Heating, and Refrigeration Institute (AHRI) recently launched www.PhaseOutFacts.org. The new Web site is designed to help make better decisions and improve compliance with refrigerant laws and regulations.
"Our intent is to provide some much needed clarity to the market by creating a simple, trustworthy source of information regarding the phaseout and how it impacts equipment owners, including homeowners, installers and wholesalers," said AHRI PresidentStephen Yurek.
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. The section created the site, which contains content specifically aimed at equipment owners, contractors and technicians, and the wholesalers who sell it, to serve as an all-encompassing resource on the issue.
The site also includes a "Get Answers" feature that allows visitors to ask questions of trusted experts if the site's existing content does not provide the information they are seeking.
