AC and heat pump technical trainer Ben Bartle-Ross looks at how mainstream R32 has become.

From its location on the Cornish coast near Bude, The Beach Hotel can see at first-hand the damaging effects that technologies and plastics are having on our environment.
The hotel wanted to lead the way in the smaller commercial sector by using an environmentally friendly natural refrigerant for its food cold storage. After talking its plans through with contractor KJ Refrigeration, it chose to use CO2 (R744).
Toshiba Air Conditioning has published new information on its latest R32 refrigerant-based Mirai, Shorai and Daiseikai residential air conditioning systems, as well as the full range of Digital Inverter and Super Digital Inverter light commercial split system range.
Publication of the brochures follows the company’s move to R32 refrigerant, and set out the benefits for end users and the environment.
