R-410A Industry Awareness

Brought to you by RSES -The HVACR Training Authority!

As the phaseout of R-22 for use in the manufacturing of new equipment is nearing, RSES wants the HVACR industry to be fully educated on the alternative and replacement refrigerants that are already entering the market place. Unlike R-22, there is virtually no single refrigerant that works effectively in both refrigeration and air conditioning applications.

This page contains a number of RSES Service Application Manual (SAM) Chapters that have been published over the last few years as well as RSES Journal articles on the subject of the R-22 phase-out and information and training in the area of the most common of the HFC replacement refrigerants for air conditioning applications, R-410A.

As you read through the attached documents, keep in mind that HVACR is an ever evolving industry and as technology is advancing the service and installation procedures and requirements are also changing at a rapid pace. It is your responsibility as an HVACR professional to keep current, and RSES can help!
